Review Notes: I had my doubts about the cigar when inspecting it prelight. Just as my previous experience with another Cusano, the Corojo, this cigar really smelled of ammonia. Also, the cigar seemed to be rather soft when slightly squeezed, giving one the impression that the draw will be way to loose. Just as I had to do with the Corojo, I dry boxed the cigar for a few hours to let the ammonia smell subside. The construction was surprisingly near perfect when actually smoked. Amazing burn, very exact and only had to relight when I left the cigar sitting for almost 45 minutes. The burn kept for periods of up to 35 minutes of not smoking, (some serious COD 4 action!) but I am not sure if that is strictly due to construction or if it was assisted by the earlier dry boxing of the cigar. The flavor profile was very delicate and difficult to define. I am not able to place my specific cigar at any familiar flavor of common foods. The taste was some where between the subtle sweetness I sometimes get from taking a whiff of the spanish ceder in my humi and a flat satiny smoothness. I did not pick up any spice or saltiness that many smokers here point out. I ended up smoking the cigar until I could not hold it because the sweetness of the cigar really picked up at the last quarter. Over all its a great cigar for mild-medium lovers and it actually had a decent kick of nicotine. Don't over look this cigar due to its prelight appearance and smell.
