Review Notes: I have had good experiences with the Da Vinci line, and that is why I felt quite disppointed with this stick. I had this in the humidor for about two years, so I'm keeping that in mind, as that may have altered the flavor. Appearance was nice, except for the cap, which looks like it was hastily put on. Pre-light aroma was fine - your run-of-the-mill tobacco aroma. The construction was nice, and as far as draw goes, this one hit the mark. Good volumes of smoke and the burn was relatively even, with no problems through the duration of the cigar. My issue is with the flavor. The first two inches of this cigar were DREADFUL. It was a very vegetal/mineral flavor, to the point that I am fairly confident that I know what it would taste like if you could actually smoke a moss covered boulder. Past that, the flavor started to change to a tobacco/nutty flavor that was more reminiscent of the Da Vinci I know. Flavor pretty much stayed the same for the rest of the cigar, and though it wasn't bad, it certainly didn't stand out. All in all, I was let down by this. Had I not suffered that horrible beginning, I would have rated this as an average stick, but taking that into account, there will be some points taken off.

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