Review Notes: Fantastic cigar!! Set aside 1.5 hours for this one. Dark, oily, gorgeous wrapper with miniscule veins and solid construction without soft spots. Easy light and good burn, though canoed about 1/3 way down - easily corrected by 1/2-way point (stored 3 months at 65/65). Started with rich spice and mild pepper and maintained spiciness throughout. Increased in complexity halfway down with hints of cocoa and leather. Gray ash that held its composure the entire length. Voluminous white, creamy smoke. Last 1-2 inches was outstanding - one of the few I nubbed to the fingertips, and left me wanted more!! Long finish with a pleasing aftertaste that dances on the palate (you actually feel the tingle!). I caught a nice buzz with about 1/3 left, and that wasn't from the Anchor Steam 2004 Holiday brew that it paired nicely with! I had actually gone out on a limb and bought a box of 20 before I had sampled even one based on it's reviews and reputation, and I'm glad I did. Definitely will make it into the core rotation, not only because it is affordable, but because the entire experience was outstanding! The hype is warranted in this stick.
