Review Notes: Now I understand why people fuss over top-notch cigars. By chance, I was cruising the Famous-Smoke Website and saw they had the Don Carlos #4 in stock. At $6.50 a stick they weren't inexpensive, but I took the plunge and bought a box, based on the ratings on that site and here. I let them rest a few weeks in the humidor, then tried my first tonight. Whoa! My immediate first impression was like the first time I tried a Pouilly-Fuisse French white wine: clear, crisp with incredible body. Through its entire length, the DC #4 kept playing a symphony on my palate, with streams of pepper, spice, coffee and cocoa alternating and mixing at various times. This corona (my favorite size cigar) finally got a touch hot at the end, but I was burning my fingers before I put it down. Like Pouilly-Fuisse, this cigar is too pricey for me to enjoy every night, but I've decided that it delivers plenty of value commensurate with that cost. By all means, try one--or a box--if you have the chance.
