Review Notes: The first thing you notice with this cigar is the cardboard wrapper. Sort of like a bottle of wine with a screw top. Cigar manufacturers use cedar sleeves to impart cedar notes, what were these guys thinking? After immediately smoking a couple from a box I bought nearly two years ago, I decided to lay the rest down, without the cardboard, and havenít touched them till now. They are attractive cigars with a nice dark brown wrapper and a strong leather and tobacco aroma. Rolling the cigar between my fingers it felt firm and the pre-light draw was not too tight and had the same leather and tobacco aroma. I became encouraged. After toasting the foot the cigar lit perfectly and burned straight as a laser. The first third was still leather and tobacco. The next third revealed a new flavor, cardboard. I guess that explains the cardboard sleeve. If you like strong flavors of leather and tobacco with a nice nicotine kick, this stick is for you. If your looking for complexity, nuance or anything else stay away from this one.
