Review Notes: This review is of the Churchill shape in the Oscuro line and thought it might "fit" in better here than anywhere else. I didn't find the appearance nearly as impressive as those reviews of the Perfecto, but the burn rate was good and I experienced no real problems from the flaws in the wrapper. There were some cracking in the wrapper and even small pieces of wrapper that had broken off exposing the binder. Although I wouldn't call it a maduro wrapper, it is definitely on the dark side and has some of the flavor characteristics of a maduro. The strong suit of this cigar is simply the overall melding of the components that produced strongs flavors of coffee and chocolate with a bit of a spicy background. Allthough this Churchill is not going to win any beauty contests, the overall smoking experience makes it a very decent smoke that can probably be bought on cigarbid.com for well under 2.00/stick. At a buck fifty or less, truly a bargain. fprefect1
