Review Notes: Wow! This cigar is huge. I tried this cigar on recommendation from the local cigar shop owner. This cigar is impressive to look at, it has a beautiful Maduro wrapper. The construction of this cigar is good, very solid for a larger ring size cigar. The Epicure has a nice aroma, earthy and cedar-ish. Be prepared, cutting this cigar is a task, most cutters donít open enough to encompass this size cigar. I ended up having to use a knife. I took a good couple of draws before lighting, very easy. This cigar is very spicy, my tongue was alive with flavor. After lighting this one I was engulfed in smoke, a very smooth easy draw. This cigar is very robust, you have to like them full bodied for this one. The Epicure burned very nicely for the first ĺ, then became slightly erratic. I had to keep after this cigar, I had to relight twice. The flavors in this increased as you get closer to the end, very spicy and peppery. It burned cool until the last 2 inches, by then my lips and tongue were tingling like crazy. My head was spinning too, this thing has a buzz factor of 10. I paid about $7.00 for the Epicure. BOTTOM LINE: A little to big for me, and too strong, very flavorful, tons of smoke, I will smoke again but only if given to me.
