Review Notes: Handsome reddish brown Honduran wrapper. Jawbreaking size. Stick was aged for 90 days. Easy draw produced gobs of thick oily smoke. Aggravating, uneven burn that took many welds from the Colibri. First third had a dead "hole" spot inside the cigar. Very flakey, loose ash. Sometimes medium but mostly a smooth, full bodied experience. Flavor, however, was a mostly mundane one demensional straight tobacco with an occasional hint of cocoa and a "different earthiness" which I have never tasted before. This can probably be attributed to the Italian and Peruvian fillers. Flavor score would be higher if the cocoa and earth were more prevalent. Overall, a decent 2 hour and 10 minute experience. (especially while watching the Sabres embarrass the Flyers 8-2) I'd be willing to try more of these if I could score them in the $4-5 range. IMO Overpriced at MSRP of $7.50. Value rating based upon $7.
