Review Notes: No. 13 in Cigar Aficionado's top 25 cigars of 2004. It's well-made with the trademark reddish-brown wrapper and a neatly done cap. It's a bit hard to light and that results in an uneven burn initially, but it does eventually straighten out; it also needed to be relit a few times. However, the draw is perfect and it produces thick clouds of smoke with a powerful aroma. The first few puffs have a lot of red pepper and are very spicy, but it becomes more balanced as coffee, cream, and nutty flavors appear to join the underlying spiciness; add the sweetness from the wrapper and you have a complex and flavorful smoke. The finish is very long and lasts until the next day. It's also a bit of a headspinner, so brace yourself. A hard to find cigar that's even harder to find at a good price; I overpaid for mine, but if you can find them at close to the MSRP, buy as many as the shop will allow.
