Review Notes: I’ve been smoking cigars on and off for 40 years. This has been my house cigar ever since I bought 6 boxes of them, on the internet, for around $3 a stick.. The internet be praised. The consistency has been amazing. A true medium to mild cigar that the 100 years of practice has made pretty close to perfect, considering the price. Like an ugly women who can cook: the Cameroon wrapper doesn’t look like much. I’d like a little less veining and more of an oily sheen. But then who really wants perfection? Over all construction is good. When you put this baby to your lips (I like to taste as well as sniff-slight urine/ammonia- a cigar before I light it). When you stoke it up you are pleasantly greeted by the mellow taste of cinnamon and a slight lingering sensation of citrus. The initial mild flavor is intriguing and typical of a good Cameroon wrapper. The curls of mild white smoke seemingly come from a magic wand between your fingers. Transfixed you contemplate these wonders: the ash is fresh, firm, long and white. Possibly an inch into this smoke there is suddenly a different sensation. The filler kicks in. Woodsy smoke and aroma. A rich earthy taste of a strong creamy expresso fills your palate. Like the nose of an aged Rioja: a slight background of vanilla and possibly berries. Wow!!! You contemplate it and stare transfixed into the white ash of this wonder. This earthy richness possibly made only for the gods!!! You smoke on in bliss. You get about as far as the band. WAM!!!! Chocolate. Dark bitter but sweet…..chocolate….with just a hint of licorice. This is the true taste shifter that you have heard about. The real chameleon. Again you contemplate it and stare transfixed into the white ash of this wonder. You don’t believe what your mouth is telling you. You smoke on in bliss. Finally…..as you finish….you look at the small nub that is left in your fingers and you wonder at all the dog rockets you have smoked in your life.
