Review Notes: Worth the hype. The attractive, uniquely shaped box foot to round head cigar boasts a dark, rough wrapper with minimal veins. Solid construction, as you would expect from a Fuente, with no soft spots. Easy light. Smooth draw. Even burn without the need for corrections or relights. Dense whitish ash. Tons of billowy white smoke. Started immediately with bold pepper, which eased into a medley of earth, game, and a haunting smokey flavor in the first third. I believe I may also have tasted a nuance of wild peppermint, as well?! The second third brought a smoother flavor with notes of cocoa and dark chocolate. The complexity grew in the last third, with a meaty, earthy flavor that was extremely enjoyable. Overall, this 90 minute full-bodied smoke is worth the hype. I would not overpay for it, but it is worth MSRP. Glad I have many around!
