Review Notes: I let this cigar rest in the humidor for exactly one year. I got it for my birthday, as agift, and I said that I would smoke it the following year. Appearance was beautiful, especially as KGBDenver posted, salomons are not easy to roll. The draw was a tad tight, but not enough that I'd ding points off of it. The flavor...impeccable. It stayed pretty consistent throughout the cigar and I would say that the overtone was caramel, with undercurrents of nuts and a floral tinge. It started to heat up on the last inch, but still retained the same flavor, though just a little more tarry. My beef was that on the last third of the cigar, it required numerous lighter touch-ups to correct the burn and keep it going. At $25, this cigar should not have needed that much correcting. Again, the pure quality of the flavor and the draw will keep me from really ripping it in the overall experience category, as even with those issue, this cigar was fantastic. All in all, this was an outstanding cigar with a medium body, and I can say that age did this stick well. Definitely not an everyday smoke, but was it worth the $25? I say yes.

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