Review Notes: Just an update on this cigar after two years of age. (I bought a box a while back dated Nov 2005). It's really becoming a great smoke. It is much less vigorous than when fresh from the box which allows a subtle spicy richness to come through over core flavors of straw and tea. A very enjoyable smoke.

Review Notes: This was awesome! This was the second stick I tried from the box I bought a few weeks back. (Box date Nov 2005). This one was much better than the first one I tried. It was much more refined in taste yet still lively and flavorful. I donít know if six weeks of rest helped it or if it was just a case of natural stick-to-stick variance, but this was a tremendous surprise. It had a slight cardboard edge throughout, but it was toned down a lot compared to the first stick I tried. A flavor of strong tea was pleasantly dominant most of the time with notes of hay and white pepper. There was a faint sweetness at the start that was very nice was well. I smoked this one down to a nub and I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the box I have. I doubt theyíll last long!

"Raw"

Review Notes: This was the first one I tried out of the box I just bought (Nov 05). Not bad, but I could definitely tell they need more time to sit. This one was quite strong for its size - I could taste the "zing" before I even lit it. The first half was pretty raw, with a strong cardboard flavor. I was getting a little bummed out about it when it really came alive in the second half. At that point, a very intense tea flavor came on and dominated the rest of the experience. It was much nicer than the brown paper flavor that characterized the first half, but still a little raw and aggressive for my taste. It'll probably be a while before I fire up another one as they obviously need ageing, but it seems like I have something to look forward to.
