Review Notes: I use the word "subtle" because it would be very easy for some smokers to easily overpass this cigar or be unimpressed since it is not what I call an "in your face" cigar like a Rocky Patel Edge or La Flor Dominicana. If you are one to smoke mostly full bodied cigars, this one may seem on the mild/medium side. On the other hand if you mostly enjoy mild cigars, this would probably be on the medium side for you. Its all about where you are coming from on the cigar spectrum; and what time of day (before meal, after meal?). The first one I smoked a year or so ago I was not too impressed, but I always like to come back again to a cigar if it has a reputation for being a quality smoke. This time I made sure that this was the only cigar I smoked today so I had a clean palate to work with. A beautifully rolled cigar, definitely lived up to the name. The draw was just right, not too loose nor tight. For the first 1/3 I had an even burn. A medium smoke with a unique "mature" flavor. A creamy, a bit of light sweetness. I had to be careful not to over-smoke this since it had such subtle flavors that could get burned out. The second 1/3 started to burn a little uneven, but after a very light touch up it was smooth sailing. If you are a cigar lover, this is obviously is a cigar that should be experienced just so it can be put in your "flavor memory bank". For the price there are so many other fine cigars to be enjoyed these days so it makes it hard for me to justify smoking these regularly. If you can find a nice sampler that includes this cigar that isn't a bad idea. I received a sampler which made this cigar cost only $3.00- not bad! Happy smoking!
