Review Notes: No. 23 in Cigar Aficionado's top 25 cigars of 2004. It has a dark, rich color and a distinctive sharp cap; you'll have to clip off a good portion of that cap or you'll have a tight draw, so keep your cutter handy just in case. It smokes great with a lush draw, mostly straight burn, and plenty of smoke. It's peppery with some chocolate and wood flavors with a chewy texture; sharp at first, it mellows out somewhat as it's smoked. Some people have suggested that if you have the patience to age these long term, you essentially create an Anniversary cigar. That could be the case as this smoke is similar to the Anniversary line but it lacks the smoothness; aging should make them even better.
