Review Notes: Received a couple of these from trading a few weeks back and finally had a couple of free hours today to enjoy one. Not the prettiest looking smoke Fuente makes. Wrapper was a little veiny and had some bumps on it. Had an odd toothy/waxy texture to it as well. Gave it a snip, lit up and got to work. Flavors in the first 1/3 were cedar with touches of pepper and spice. 2/3 brought in some creaminess on the finish. Last third would have the occasional taste of dark chocolate and coffee. This may sound like a complex smoke but a short finish keeps it from being that. Still great none the less. Draw started out rather tight but loosened up nicely after about an inch and a half. Burn was near perfect but needed one correction to prevent tunneling. This is a long smoke, took me a little over an hour and a half from light up to less than an inch left. Overall, this is an awesome cigar, though the price tag may turn some people away. I've seen these go for as much as 25+ dollars a stick. However I feel this is one instance where you just bite the bullet and go for it, that is if you can find them.
