Review Notes: I guess you have to age these 5 years and one month for them to get really good. I had a very enjoyable morning experience with this stick with New Orleans style coffee (coffee/chicory blend and steamed milk) after a light breakfast. A very creamy, smooth tasting cigar that smoked and burnt like a champ. This had a mostly mild body flashing to medium with personality. As Ashman stated, I too found something floral to the flavor as well as a sweet tobacco base and some light spice and cedar. Enjoyable, but not for the full crowd. I'd highly reccomend this to someone starting out in this wonderful hobby once you aged the harshness out for....5 years! yikes!...that's a long time!

Review Notes: Like the rest of you this stick was "sampled to me" and had been around in my box for about 5 years. It started out very smooth and creamy with some vanilla, nuts, and wood undertones. Light in body but kind of nice. I thought I had found another Fonseca Vintage. However the last half was hot, harsh, and spicey. I think the construction lead to the second half downfall as the draw went from perfect to loosey goosey. If I could score these for $2/stick I'd take another chance on these to keep around for morning smokes... otherwise I'd pass. A very unobtrusive middling type of cigar but with some nice potential especially for the mild crowd.. I'll enter $4 for PP.
