Review Notes: Nice shape, nice big old fancy style cuban ring, wrapper was a nice reddish brown color with minimal veigning. This stick is supposed to be in the old time mold of classic cuban style crafted cigars. It was the first Honduran cigar to score a 93 rating at CI (I think it was CI) W.Churchill loved these sticks. ANYWAY...The flavor to me was good and solid in the medium to full range. It was generally earthy, wooden, leathery yet kind of blah boring most of the way through. Every now and then towards the end a bit of cinnamon and chocolate came through. I wish these flavors came through more. Ash was tight white. Draw was perfect. Smoke lasted an hour and 15 minutes and the after taste was fantastic. I aged this guy another 2 months in my box after buying it. I liked it but there was a middling blahness through most of it. I am not sure I'd buy a box just yet.
