Review Notes: Bought a box of Belinda Black Cubanos and fired one up after 1 week in the humi. These were not wrapped in cedar, came in a painted black cedar box. Nicely constructed, firm, no lumps or underfilled spots, chocolate brown wrapper was near perfect with one small vein. Fired up nicely but the draw was tough. Draw stayed tough all the way down, just hard enough to be annoying. I didn't get much smoke from this cigar and it burned slowly and evenly, no need to correct at all. Flavor was great, mild-medium, slightly stronger as it burned. Coffee, nuts, some lingering sweetness. Wrapper cracked slightly 2/3 of the way down but I smoked it past the band. I'll keep these in a humidor for a while and hopefully the draw will improve. As it is, they are marginally more expensive than bundled seconds and a lot more satisfying. Most of the bundles I have are sandwich construction, even ones advertised as "all long filler". The taste on these cigars was just great, better draw and they are a solid 8 cigar.
