Review Notes: After about 9 months of aging these cigars are still very good, though they have lost the strong leathery tones that they had when young. At light they are pretty strong, with some cocoa and a potent cedary tone. The leathery sweetness is still there but subdued and they tend to be a bit dry. Still turning milder after an inch to a consistent medium bodied even burn with good ash retention. Alternating mix of toasty, lightly earthy and cedary flavors with leathery puffs every now and then. Near the band on two different ones it required a purge to clear up some unpleasant tanginess. Good complexity but I think I actually prefer them younger.

Review Notes: The first inch was leathery and toasty with a nice cocoa overtone, medium/full in body. It dropped off to a medium toastiness in the middle and then built back stronger to the end. Great burn, great cigar!
