Review Notes: Smoked three over the weekend from the latest batch I got from c-bid. They were all OK. Not mindblowing like the well aged stick I smoked during the Rose Bowl. You should be able to score these for a buck or so a throw on c-bid. At the very least you'll have some very nice yard or giveaway gars that could very well develop into something fantastic. Overall, a nice, smooth, mild to medium straightforward tobacco flavored stick. I shall give an average of the last 3 smoked review. PP$ is 1.00.

Review Notes: An attractive, well constructed, and simply delicious cigar. Has Nick Perdomo's reblend resurrected this once 90 rated line back to respectability? Reviewer Skixtremist82, fml and I think so. Veteran reviewers Ashman and SeanGAR don't. This makes me nervous. I value their opinions. They are usually right on. I have found plenty of nice sticks with their help. But...based upon last nights experience, while watching Texas QB V. Young (almost) singlehandedly defeat USC in the Rose Bowl, I must write that this cigar was fantastic. At times this stick reminded me of a 1000 Series Padron, a Camacho Corojo, a 5 Vegas '05 Limitada and the CT 1959 Exodus. All those sticks have that "yummy- tobaccoey- meaty- chewy- ness" quality with a hint of earthy sweetness that hits my palate (and hopefully yours) just right. I nicked a 20 sampler bundle of these on cbid for like $25. I then forgot about them in the box for 2 plus months. At a buck plus change a throw a possible "10" in value. Don't go nuts on these just yet as the reviews are all over the board on these sticks. I may have got the good stick in the box just like others may have got the bad stick. Tread cautiously here as there seems to be consistency issues. I am entering 1.25 for PP$. Expect to pay $3-$4 a single from your cigar man. If you must plunge now you should be able to get a good deal on these somewhere on the net. I'll be back with another review of these soon.
