Review Notes: No. 4 in Cigar Aficionado's top 25 cigars of 2004. It's a beautifully shaped cigar with a toothy and slightly oily wrapper with good color. While the draw is slightly firm it burns evenly and consistently; the ash is solid but the smoke produced is a little thin and wispy. The first half-inch is pretty bland; this cigar is supposed to be a slow starter so this wasn't a surprise. However, it doesn't improve much as only a dry wood flavor appears to accompany the sweetness from the wrapper. There are vague hints of nuts and other spices but they never fully surface. A disappointing smoke, especially given the price and the name. This cigar was undoubtably better in the past, but the recent poor reviews suggest that the current blend may be off, or the Fuente people have been neglecting this line while pursuing their other projects.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (4) No (12)
