Review Notes: After a few weeks in the humidor, I pulled this one out to try with a glass of my favorite smoking scotch, Dalmore Cigar Malt. The wrapper smelled rich and leathery, but the leathery tones never appeared in the flavor. At light it was robustly cocoa and pretty rich, and settled down quickly to a smooth cocoa and coffee flavor with hints of nuttiness every once in a while. At about 2 inches left, it developed a tinge of bitterness, which got stronger and stronger until I was forced to put it down. A medium-bodied and fairly rich cigar, but I noticed a charcoal aftertaste that lingered for a few hours, and wasn't entirely pleasant. Overall the Padron 2000M has a similar taste profile, smokes better, is more complex and $1 cheaper. This is a good cigar, but the Padron IMHO is a better value.
