Review Notes: Overhyped? Yes. Deserving of CA's #1 rating for 2004? No. A damn good cigar - definitely. This attractive perfectly box pressed stick is wrapped in a lush maduro wrapper with minimal veins. Hefty in the hand, the construction was superb without any soft spots. Easy light. Super smooth draw. Razor sharp burn without the need for relights or corrections. White-gray ash. Started with spice and wood. The first third held notes of chocolate, cinammon, cocoa, wood, menthol, and sweet warm leather. The smoothness increased in the middle third and brought a toasted tobacco flavor with whispers of herbal and floral qualities. The sweet leather notes continued to dance in and out. In the last third, I detected some vanilla and a mild tanginess - noticeable, but still pleasant. All in all, this one hour 10 minute smoke was an extraordinarily complex, medium-to-full bodied, smooth smoke with incredible construction. The B&M price was $26, but it he gifted it to me, which may have made it taste even better! Regardless, it is a damn good cigar. For that coin, however, there are better values. A nice treat.
