Review Notes: After running through a few more of these (some boxes appear to be very, very dark and almost Maduro even though not specified as such) I've noted a large variation in flavor. Most have been smooth, toasty and leathery...some have been funky, very tarry, weirdly flavored and very harsh. My rating is thus a composite of a bunch of different ones, and it appears that extensive aging is required to smooth things out.

"Natural: good if aged"

Review Notes: The later Maduro wrapper version follows...and is not so pleasant. The natural (if stored properly) is smooth, toasty and leathery. Very consistent if a bit lacking in taste, and if not aged for several months it has a funky aftertaste that is pretty unpleasant. Aging is key here.
