Review Notes: Darker than usual wrappers on these. AH, Bolivars! Most have a vein or two and they oil up beautifully with a few weeks in a properly regulated humidor set at 65-68%. You can crank it up to 70% if, like me, you are putting them up for long term aging. A squeeze between the fingers revealed an even, supple roll. Nice looking cap and a rich, earthy aroma completes the pre-light description. The cigars light up right away and combustion was better than adequate. Most sticks burned right through without a re-light. The draw was just this side of firm and opened up just shy of halfway through. The firm ash was the correct speckled grey. Flavor started out medium/strong and got stronger from there. The smoke was thick and rich with loads of leather, pepper, and earth. Nice! The flavor of the few I've smoked from my late '05 batch was a bit conflicted in the way that young, strong tobacco can sometimes be but these give every indication that they will mature into truly memorable classics. I'll let you know.
