Review Notes: I enjoyed this cigar much more than the maduro Missile. Smoked it for breakfast and it wasn't too strong. More of a medium strength than a medium-full to me, but it might be a little strong for a beginner. It had a nice, cedary flavor with an earthy, very creamy base and the faintest hint of spice. Later, it bacame more oakey, with leathery hints and a nice balance with the creaminess developing into a base flavor/mouth feel. Some puffs were a little harsh, but a purge and a rest cleared that up, so I may have been puffing too frequently. The burn was fairly straight and the draw was perfect. I did have to touch it up twice, though. The aroma was woodsy and slightly sweet throughout. I like the size, sort of a pointy, short corona gorda. I think I like the robustos better, but I will buy more of these and see how they age if I don't smoke them up too quickly. Nothing spectacular, but a real nice smoke with no BS about it.
