Review Notes: I purchased a 3-pk of tubos, which are absolutely slick, BTW. And lit up the first one as soon as I figured they were reconditioned. Boy, I think the ones I smoked before this one were all fakes, cause I was absolutely blown away! Big flavors of coffee, cedar, and rich tobacco, with a very distinct sweetness that stayed on my tongue and lips with every draw. And, of course, the "twang". Had a little bit of spice throughout, but became positively peppery in the final 1.5". I hope this mellows with age, as it was almost too much for comfort. Burned very well, especially for a CC, only requiring a single minor touch-up for the whole cigar. The draw was a bit tight, but delivered billowing clouds of smoke, until I finally nubbed it with only 3/4" remaining. The finish was long and sweet, a parting gift from Havana, and I can only imagine how much better these will be with some age on them. I am buying a box and another 3-pk as soon as I can afford them, and we shall see! Highly recommended. These might take the crown from my coveted Montecristo No. 2s in a few years, if they age well. Plus, if they don't come plugged or burn crooked, that would put them over the top, as they are neck and neck right now, IMO. But we'll see. One cigar isn't enough to even begin to make that kind of assumption yet, so I am forced to smoke many more. Poor me! = )

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (5) No (9)
