Review Notes: I wrote a review last month based upon cigars I smoked several years ago. Just got a box in Vienna, Austria, produced in 2004. Have smoked three so far. The first one was a disappointment; same problems as before. Extremely tight draw that allowed no flavor, was too much work, and therefore gave no pleasure. The second and third ones, however, reminded me why I loved these cigars in the first place (you tend to remember the good ones and not the bad ones). Unbelieveable complex, unique flavors. The finish is amazing - lingers ever so gently. Great draw with lots of smoke. One of the best ever. Really, this is what a cigar is supposed to be like. So I felt my first review did not do this stick justice. So you know the drawbacks (pun intended!). If you buy a single give it a very light squeeze all over first to confirm the construction, i.e., that its not too tightly rolled. If you buy a box, be prepared to accept that a few (you hope!) will be tossed aside owing to quality control. Once you cut one, test the draw. If its very tight, just toss it and go on to the next one...its not worth the frustration..yeah, I know it hurts. Just means you are essentially paying for a box of 20 not 25!

Review Notes: Just a great pyramid. Complex taste, full bodied. Always have some construction inconsistencies...some times very tough draw. If you get a good one, they are great, if not, its such a waste.
