Review Notes: Not sure if they changed the sizes with the re-release. The format that is closesest to this size is the Gothic, which is a 6"x52 torpedo. I find this to be one of the best $6 cigars out there, and I say that after going through 3 boxes. The form is superb, with smooth wrappers, flawless construction, and perfect draw. Out of more than 60 sticks I only had one that was misbehaved in terms of burn, and that one corrected itself in the last third. In terms of flavor, these are medium to full bodied. If you clip them higher up to create a larger aperture, you get a stronger cigar. These have a good balance of spice throughout, with flavors of leather and berry and a wonderful, mellow sugar cane sweetness with a hint of vanilla. My preferred expensive cigars are Cohiba robustos and siglo VI's. The Gothic has a similar flavor profile in many respect. While not quite as luxuriant as the Cohibas, for 1/2 to 1/3 the cost they provide far better value. An outstanding cigar.
