Review Notes: A truly fantastic cigar! This double corona EL'03 (unknown box code as it was a gift) is draped in a lush, rich dark chocolate wrapper with minimal veins and mild tooth. Hefty in the hand, the construction was superb with no soft spots. Easy light. Even burn with the need for only one relight when there was 2 inches left. Dense black-gray ash. Tons of creamy smoke. Started with grass and tobacco. The first third brought a veritable cornucopia of flavors, including cocoa, chocolate, vanilla, and that classic Cohiba grassiness. It was noticeably rich, creamy, and chewy. I feel like I should be describing a candy bar rather than a cigar! The middle third saw notes of game, honeyed tobacco, and a sweet tanginess all on a backdrop of grass. In the final third, I sensed a hint of dark chocolate and a slight floral chaaarcter. All in all, this 2 hour full-bodied complex cigar is one of the very best I have had. The panopoly of flavors on this thing mixed with the richness and creaminess is simply sublime. Paired well with Matusalem Classico. Bought a box and didn't think twice about it.
