Review Notes: This is an incredible cigar!! Perfectly shaped attractive Robusto with an inviting brown wrapper with medium veins. Solid construction, even dense, with no soft spots. Nice prelight aroma. Easy light. Firm draw that required a modified Draw Poker (a bamboo skewer) to get it to loosen up a bit. Uneven burn in the first third despite storage for 3 months at 65/62 that required a relight and a couple corrections (though also smoked on a windy day). Gray-white flakey ash. Blue smoke. Started immediately with cream, wood, white & black pepper, and spice. This mellowed out in the first third but maintained its creamy complexity, with a toasted wood flavor and tangy spice. The middle third was loaded with coffee, mild nuts, and an herbal flavor which melded nicely with the tangy foundation. Notes of cinnamon and vanilla were also noticeable. The last third brought a floral quality and a tangy sweetness that made for a wonderful, medium-to-full bodied complex smoke. All in all, this one hour 45 minute smoke was one of the best I have ever had. The Mag 46 is my favorite smoke - hands down - but this one clearly runs in the top 5. Additional age will undoubtedly make this cigar a classic. Will definitely buy more!
