Review Notes: With just a little proper aging the Conn. Havana seed extra dark natural wrapper changes from a very dark brown to black and becomes amazingly brilliant in no time at all. It looks as if its been "shoe shined". You can see yourself in this cigar. Aside from nice looks, the construction in the 3 or 4 I've smoked has been top. An easy draw produces gobs of relaxing smoke. It seems ASHMAN looks forward to smoking these almost as much as I do. Flavor is a rich savory blend of pleasant spice, earth, with a little mocha sweetness coming thru in an overall medium to fringe of full body experience. Be sure to smoke these slow so the strength in these doesn't overpower the nice flavors. I always thought this was a maduro wrapper. It's not. Don't confuse this cigar with the the Excalibur by HDM No II Maduro. For a while I did. Make sure it says 1066 on the band. I've nicked these on c-bid for $3/stick. Nearly a 10 in value at that price. MSRP should be a little over $5. Still a fine value. Like ASHMAN, I love this cigar too.
