Review Notes: Man, this thing was all over the place. Decent apperance and pre-light aroma. Construction-wise, it was okay. Burn was mostly even (it would start to get a runner and then even itself out, for the most part), but the draw was extremely tight for the first third of the cigar. About 1/2 way in it loosened up a bit and for the last third it was okay, but not great. Flavor-wise...extremely varied. Started of kind of leathery, which then changed to a woody and coffee flavor with a strong undertone of anise that lasted through the entire smoke. There was a very tart flavor to the smoke that was okay and bearable, but not too enjoyable, until about halfway to the three quarters in, when that tartness went away and the undercurrent turned buttery which was extremely enjoyable. Towards the last inch and a half it got kind of tarry which dissipated somewhat after I purged it once. This was a good smoke, for the most part. It was just inconsistent in it's flavor and had it remained the way it was during that middle half of the cigar, I would give this a 10 on flavor. Not a bad deal, and I think that a good few months in the humidor might alleviate some of those issues.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (10) No (9)
