Review Notes: The first one I had of these sat for about 3-4 weeks with no cello in my humidor, and I was a bit disappointed. It was flat, somewhat tasteless and boring until the sledgehammer last 2-2.5" where it came on strong and oaky. Given the good price, I tried another, and smoked it with only 1 day in the humidor to stabilize it. WOW what a difference. The start was robustly oaky and sweet, and it developed alternating overtones of coffee, cocoa and leathery bits overlaying a base of oaky tobacco. I expected harshness or bitterness, but this was absolutely nowhere to be found. The finish was even stronger than before, and knocked me on my butt for quite a while (even though I smoked it after a big meal). My recommendation is to store them in the cello, and take them out only a couple of days before smoking...the tobacco is cured well enough already to smoke immediately...but loses strength quickly in the humidor.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (8)
