Review Notes: This is a beautiful fat-footed perfecto with a dark brown, oily wrapper. It feels a bit spongy at the foot but much firmer at the head. Despite the nipple foot, it struggles with the burn at first and burns unevenly throughout. At the end, it side-burned to one inch left on one side and nearly two inches left of wraper on the other. One torching in mid-smoke evened it out briefly. This had been in a 65% RH humidor for several weeks, but inside an unseald plastic baggie. Perhaps the wrapper was still wet, but that doesn't explain why it burned unevenly. As for the flavor, it began as a full frontal assault powerhouse, mellowed out and became amazingly tasty and complex. Despite the burn problems, I bought three more today to enjoy after at least six months in the 'dor.
