Review Notes: This is a damn good smoke! By appearance, it is an attractive, but plain-looking brown wrapper with medium veins. Solid construction with a nice cap and no soft spots. Wonderful pre-light aroma that only a Cuban can give. After an easy light, this stick started immediately with mild spice, wood, and cream. The creaminess intensified as it got down to the halfway point, where the complexity increased with the addition of a hint of burnt coffee and earth. The "woodiness" flavor separated into 2 ntoes - a distinct cedary note as well as oak. In the last 1/3, I detected floral notes, cinnamon, and even a "menthol" like flavor. Tons of creamy white smoke enticed the people I was with to glance over and see what smelled so good. Draw was effortless, but not hot. In the end, this medium-bodied delight lasted an hour and I was sad to see the nub disappear into gray ash. This is a hyped cigar, which set my expectation level higher. It delivered. Not a headspinner, but you will feel some Vitamin N by the last 1/3. Bought 5 more. Well worth it.
