Review Notes: An odd vitola for most U.S. based smokers, and not one you'll fire up on the links if you have hang-ups about your public image, just as Elk Twin said. All that aside, this is a nice cigar. Burn was perfect, yielding a compact, dark ash. Taste was mild, but deep. To my palate, it had "woodsy" rather than "nutty" tones. Creamy, but not as sweet as I expected, though there were odd moments when a honey-like flavor came through. It gave all the smoke it had to give generously, though I found myself wanting more. This was not a fault on the cigars' part--just my gluttony. It lasted quite a long time, burning slowly, and I, too, was able to smoke it down to the nub before it didn't want to cooperate any more. I'm left with the impression that its on the expensive side--about $7.00 a stick for me--but I know this is just my greed for more smoke speaking. Perhaps after smoking a few more I'll lose this slight prejudice.
