Review Notes: The first third of this beast is full-flavored, but relatively tame. Up front I noticed a sweet cereal taste and a salty aftertaste, but itís surprisingly smooth. Full flavored, absolutely, but with no harshness. After an inch or so I ran into the problem that everyone speaks of: it really does not want to burn evenly. I struggled with the burn throughout the length of this stick and had to correct it every ten minutes, which is usually enough to make me throw out what Iím smoking and head to the humi for another one. But after after this just about any other cigar would taste like slightly warmish air. At the mid-point the power of this cigar is at full tilt. The aroma is rich and heady, almost sulfurous, and the flavor is incredibly complex with leather, pepper and sweet tobacco. The aftertaste is earthy and lingering with a very long finish. About half an inch into the two-thirds section, after the bulbous part was nearly consumed, this cigar threw me aside like an old dish rag. It loses any semblance of complexity at this point to sheer power. This cigar is for serious heavyweights only -- I was able to appreciate it up to a point, but then it threw me from the ring. Great cigar if you can handle it.
