Review Notes: Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad cigar. But it isn't nearly as great as all the hype. Perhaps they have the same mystique as Cuban cigars, the lack of availability. Do NOT pay more than suggested retail, and they are barely worth that. They are not nearly worth the 20-30 dollar price for a single cigar, which many web sites are asking. For those who have never smoked one, you are not missing anything out of the ordinary. There were problems with the wrapper, which unraveled a bit after I smoked about a quarter of the way down. I would not expect this from a Fuente cigar. It lacks any type of complexity of flavor. A dull straight-forward tobacco taste, with cedar traits, which may be from the cedar wrap it comes in. I have had better cigars at a fraction of the price, and I paid retail. I have about 30 singles, which I purchased at retail, and acquired through various trades, before realizing that they are no big "shmeal." I would not hesitate to sell, trade, or give some to friends. Considering all the hype, a major disappointment.
