Review Notes: No. 10 in Cigar Aficionado's top 25 cigars of 2004. It's a solid and well-rolled stick with a pretty wrapper. It smokes very well with an even and consistent draw and burn and a nice ash. Starts off spicy and strong, even harsh, but after an inch or so it mellows to show wood flavors and subtler spices; it may mellow too much as much of the initial strength dissipates. Half-way through it becomes creamier and nuttier, with a refreshing and slightly minty finish. The high price and the many mixed reviews may prevent people from giving this smoke a try, but I liked it, especially for the flavor changes.
