Review Notes: This is a full-bodied experience! Deep, rich, oily maduro wrapper with medium veins. Solid construction - heavy in the hand - with no soft spots. Earthy prelight aroma. Easy light. Good draw. Burned even without the need for correction. Gray-white ash. Started immediately with pepper and spice, but then quickly gave way to a prominent earthy undertone which served as the foundation for notes of burnt leather and cocoa in the first third. These flavors gave way to a distinctive semi-sweet chocolate taste in the middle third that was layered on top of the aforementioned flavors. The stick became very smooth, rich, and complex by the halfway point and continued for the rest of the stick. The last third was a medley of earth, mild pepper, chocolate and cocoa with a hint of sweetness (like dark chocolate). All in all, this one and a half hour smoke is full-bodied and rich. Not loaded with a ton of Vitamin N, but you definitely shouldn't smoke it too fast. Would do well as an apres-dejuener smoke with espresso.
