Review Notes: I read some good reviews about this smoke and have walked by it in my local B&M many times in favor of other selections. But as a big Don Pepin fan and after recently meeting the man and his son Jaime who actually crafted this smoke it was only a matter of time before I lit one. The oily, rough oscuro wrapper is right up my alley. Unfortunately it had some soft spots and as I found out quickly after lighting it I wasn't able to pull as much smoke as I wanted on a normal puff. It was very smooth and well balanced and as I moved into the 2nd third the power made itself known but never got harsh. I enjoyed a balance of coffee, wood and hint of cocoa with a nice creamy finish throughout. Unfortunately the easy draw didn't help me in getting the fullness of flavors that were apparent. Next time I hope to remember to try a punch cut which may increase the smoke. I will try the "Ruky" again as it has real potential and was quite satisfying but not until I work through a few more strong Oscuro options.
