Review Notes: This is an old school Cuban-tasting cigar. Attractive pyramid vitola. Tawny brown wrapper with miniscule veins. Solid construction with no soft spots. Deceivingly bland prelight aroma. Easy light. Good draw with the perfect amount of resistance. Even burn without the need for relighting or correciton. Salt-and-pepper ash. Billowy white smoke. Started with straight in-your-face tobacco and leather in the first third. The tobacco flavor remained the prominent flavor and assumed a "toasted" character as it was smoked (as has been described). This was joined by notes of oak, white pepper, and a mild saltiness in the middle third. In the last third, grassy notes and a mild citrus flavor danced in and out - all layered on the toasted tobacco foundation. All in all, this hour-and-a-half smoke is a classic Cuban cigar. It is tannic and flavorful, but not loaded with Vitamin N. Will definitely age well. Pairs well with a strong beer or coffee.
