Review Notes: Grecian leaf? I don't know what it is, but there's something unique in this smoke. The first half is just your normal quality smoke. As I smoked it I thought, "I can see this being a big hit in resort bars." It's good, balanced and not overwhelming. The secondary smoke doesn't irritate, it has good flavor and is enjoyable. Then something happened. The cigar "kicked it up a notch". Much fuller body and a little spice for a few minutes. I switched to a good boch beer to keep the palet in the zone. The last 45% of the smoke was all TWANG, as someone else said. It must be the Grecian leaf. It's like nothing I've tasted. The word that came to mind is eucalyptus. It hovers in your sinus cavity like a balm. Truly unique. It is a little overpowering and unbalances the overall flavor a bit. But, this is not a cigar that requires you to "pay attention". It demands your attention for the last 40% or so. I can see this would be an unpleasant surprise for a novice smoker. You have to have smoked enough "normal" stuff to enjoy the "exotic-ness" of the Grecian leaf. I paid about $9/stck for a box of these, so I find the value pretty high as well.
