Review Notes: I bought this one from a box that had been opened about 10 minutes before I arrived at my local favorite store, and it only sat for 3 days in my humidor before I heard it screaming "smoke me!!!!" So I did, and life was good. The only problems in burn were a tendency towards bitterness on smoking too fast (probably due to a severe lack of aging on my part). However, on smoking it slowly it was a 90 minute cigar, and had an outstanding array of flavors. It started out medium/full with a definite sweetness that stayed on for the whole smoke. Alternating tones of toasty/nutty and leathery flavors overlayed the primary medium-body cocoa and espresso base flavor. I had rolled out and built a really nice artichoke/grilled chicken/sundried tomato pizza for dinner, and tossed it in the oven at 3" because I thought it would turn harsh early. Well, I ended up nubbing it and burning the pizza, but I didn't care. I have another ageing right now, so in a few weeks I'll find out if it is truly box-worthy.
