Review Notes: Perhaps this review is a bit premature as I have only smoked 2/3 of the dark beauty, but here I go anyway. The prelight aroma and draw were different than I imagined. It was almost sweet without any harshness. even prior to the light you could smell what the 5 years of aging has done. Upon lighting I may have been abit harsh (probably my fault), but that taste dissapeared instantly. As I began to smoke this dark and a bit oily cigar I tasted a bit of earthiness that some may say has a degree of sweetness. That being said this is a complex cigar with a medium to full body. smoking through the halfway point I began to pick up some very subtle spiciness that was plesent. The overall taste of the cigar is top notch. This cigar never needed to be touched up or relit. It had a semi-even burn that was at all times acceptable. The construction was also top notch, with the ash begging to stay on. The only thing I could add to make this cigar perfect was the volume of smoke. I did not get giant clouds of smoke from this cigar, and the draw was abit tight. All that being said this was a great cigar that deserves to be in my top 10. a word about pricing and value, I paid 10.80 in a california smoke shop. for 5-8 dollars the value would be a 9-10

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (5)
