Review Notes: This is hands down my favorite maduro and one of my favorite cigars. Right out of the box this cigar is great but after aging for one year it is elevated to exceptional. Complexity, flavor, refinement and aroma equaled only by the Cuban Bolivar Belicosos Finos. This is the only cigar I have smoked which truly has identifiable flavors like cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, nuts and pepper. Smooth beyond description. Only negative, uneven burn but with these flavors so what. Word of caution the cigar hit a "Dumb" period at 6 months and the flavor deteriorated before improving to exceptional.

"Aged 6 months"

Review Notes: This is one of my favorite cigars so I aged a few for 6 months to see how they would improve. The first 1/3 of the cigar was outstanding, ultra rich smooth and robust. However, the flavor of the cigar deteriorated the last two inches. I could taste a hint of ammonia which ruined a otherwise exquisite cigar. Maybe a few months more aging will do for the last half of the cigar what it did for the first half.
