Review Notes: Not sure what makes this special edition so special. I love the Havana VI but this was missing value and flavor. Don't get me wrong - this is an excellent cigar - it is mellow and smooth with just a little kick and a short finish of faint cedar and cocoa. Aroma nothing spectacular. Wrapper a bit toothy with a very big bump (stem?) just below the band. Burn was straight for the first half but the second half canoed. A touch up corrected this and it was pretty straight from then on. To it's credit this cigar never turned on me. Smooth and consistent flavor to the nub with no bitterness, ever. Is this worth $10? Maybe. It clearly has some age on it which I guess is what we are paying for here. I just wish there was as much flavor as in the regular red labels. I have one more of these and will only re-review if it remarkably different. I also have 2 of the East and am looking forward to them.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (4) No (9)
