Review Notes: I expected much more from this stick. It was well-rolled, and lit easily and evenly off a cedar spill. Burn was a little uneven, but quickly corrected itself. The flavor was very different from what I am used to in Cuban cigars. It opened up with a typical Cuban tobacco flavor, musty and slightly sour, but then turned very toasty and woodsy, most reminding me of an Ecuadorian grown Connecticut wrapper cigar from the D.R. Not much complexity, although it did become quite spicy during the last 2" or so and had a nice, smooth texture to the smoke not present in other cigars I would compare it to. I think I will buy a few more just to have some around and see what some age does to their flavor. I don't know the box date, as it was purchased as a single. This stick was rather boring and nothing really stood out. I would smoke this after a light lunch or sushi dinner or something. Worth trying, but you can get almost the same flavor experience from smoking a Cabaiguan Guapo, IMO. The bands will make a cool addition to my collection, though!
