Review Notes: I've had one of these sitting in the humidor for about 4 months now, and I finally got around to smoking it today. The cigar has an awesome look to it, with a great wrapper. It's nice and dark and oily, looks even and has minimal veins. The feel is nice, the cigar has some heft to it and feels solid. The stick smells nice, with a woodsy smell to it. Lighting took a few extra seconds than normal, but this is a big ring cigar. For the first inch or so, the cigar is pretty weak, but then it picks up significantly. The aroma is excellent, with a cedar like smell. The draw is even, but not alot of smoke comes out. The taste is hard to describe, but has hints of sweetness, and clove. It is very similar to a Partagas Black Label Maximo, but milder, which was a good thing. The cigar burns very slowly, and has a tight ash that won't fall until you tap it off. The cigar actually went out on me with 5" to go, so I put it aside for later this evening. The longer I smoked it, the more the flavor picked up, from mild to medium body. I got a good buzz off the cigar, too. Overall it was a great piece, with only some minor uneven burn as a dark spot on an otherwise shining smoke.
