Review Notes: I couldn't wait to smoke this cigar. I'd been looking at it for weeks in the humi and finally couldn't wait any more. What a beautiful reddish-brown smooth wrapper it has. Nice pre-light aroma, NO pre-light taste. Draw throughout the smoke was a little firm but not to it's detriment. But again, not much flavor. A distinct sweetness but no spice at all and very little body. Hints of coffee and leather were there but nothing defining the cigar. So, perhaps it needed a bit longer aging - I don't think so. Just not very complex. One singular characteristic which struck me early and often: the wrapper had a couple of small holes near the cap so when drawing I could feel air coming through. Not a huge deal but different and definitely a QC issue. Also, midway through the wrapper split. I have one more and will probably gift it eventually. Not my cup of tea.
