Review Notes: I was lucky enough to be gifted an example of this cigar from the 70's. It was easliy the best cigar I have smoked in 2008, and would rank right up there for '07 as well. The wrapper had darkened significantly, and the cap appeared almost maduro in color. Yet the wrapper felt silky smooth, cut nicely, and the cigar burned perfect without a single touch-up. Immediately I was taken aback by the power this cigar still had after 30+ years, and the flavors were outstanding. Spice, earth, cedar and black coffee came through as flavors. The cigar drew so perfectly I had to be sure to not puff to hard. First cigar in a while I allowed to burn my fingertips. Just an outstanding example of what happens to a great cigar when it is stored properly and aged to perfection.
