Review Notes: A decent looking chap with a slightly oily wrapper. It starts up with the sweet and spicy aroma typical of good auld cameroon. Getting a deep whiff of this stuff is a sinus surprise, and it kept my nose tingling from start to finish. A very nice Cameroon that is a bit sharper than most, with a little pepper mixed in with the expected baking spices. The initial flavor is woody, somewhat dry, and the smoke texture is creamy smooth. After an inch or two the sharpness of the Cameroon is blended in with the rest of the cigar and the result is a pleasantly complex smoke. By the mid-point it becomes a little salty and thereís a tartness that vies with the Cameroon sweetness, creating an interesting balance. It reminds me of a really good glass of India Pale Ale ó the hoppiness is aromatic, like the wrapper here, while the body of the beer is lip-smackingly astringent. If the proper balance can be achieved, as it is here, this is a killer combination. This is a fine smoke, but the price is not. A welcome treat, but a Torano 1916 robusto is nearly as good a cameroon at less than half the price.
