Review Notes: Definitely a great smoking experience! A very handsome perfecto with a tawny brown medium-veined wapper and good prelight aroma. Smooth, easy draw through the first third that started with leather and a hint of pepper, but quickly eased into a smooth, rich, creamy taste with buttery notes. Canoed in the first third, but auto-corrected by halfway, despite 4 months @ 65/65. By the haflway point, the draw got a little firmer, but not obstrusive. Vanilla and some floral notes made a brief appearance at this point, as well, but subsided fairly quickly. Very smooth - the aging here is noticeable. I detected a black tea aftertaste that lingers for about a minute that I have not tasted in another cigar to this point. This stick plumes like crazy. with TONS of billowing white smoke. Gray ash that holds firm - only needed to ash twice by the end, which I nubbed. I do have to say it got a little heady by about 1/3 left, but that may have been my aggressive herfing b/c this cigar is so delicious. Expensive (I picked up my stash for a little over $8/stick), and not an everyday smoke for me, but worth it. I picked up 36 - will be a gem for a long time to come.
