Review Notes: Words escape me when it comes to this cigar - specifically the maduro version of this. Slightly sweet, peppery, coffee tones, and a distinct tang all combine for a rich and flavorful smoke. I've had a couple of these in my humi, but have always been a little afraid to some them mainly because Rocky Patel had always been so hit-and-miss with me. Plus, whenever someone mentions "Cuba" or "Cuban Blend" in a cigar, the assumption is that the make made it so powerful so that I'm going to be puking my guts up later. Granted, this is not a cigar for a mild or inexperienced smoker; you will get a buzz of of it. However, it hits high marks in just about every department. It has an almost perfect draw, has a decent burn, great flavor, produced lots of smoke, holds an ash for and inch or longer...did I mention that it had a good flavor? The ash itself is on the dark side, being silvery gray with amber colorings mixed in. Oh yeah, and it has a good flavor. Did I mention that already? The only drawback is that if you get them a little young, they'll taste like bitter, black coffee - especially the corojo versions. So, you might want to let them sit for about 6 months before cracking open the box. I purchased a box microseconds after I finished my first sample. I highly recommend you do too.
