Review Notes: I've been addicted to the pleasures of cigars for about a year now. Can't stop smoking 'em, buying 'em and reading about 'em. Let me start off with a trajedy on par with Bill Shakespeare. My very first Cuban was a Cohiba that a girl bought me on a cruise (musta cost her a pretty penny). I thanked her and proceeded to place it on my desk. There it sat for 7 or 8 months...collecting dust. Until it finally got knocked off and the wrapper busted right off. (That was one way to get the dust off). Well, I may be dumb but I'm not just gonna throw away a Cuban without seeing what all the hubub is about. I lit it up, took a few puffs, and chucked it in the toilet...MY GOD this thing tastes like crap (or...like it had been sitting on a desk collecting dust for almost a year). Having some friends that always talked about their cigars, I told 'em..."yea, I smoked a Cuban and gotta tell ya...not all that impressed". I KNOW! Since then I've seen the light (and bought a few humidors). This little pc was my second experience. MUCH BETTER! I smoked it after eating lunch on the Upper Gauley in WV. A class 5 white water rapids (I had it triple protected). Anyone who doesn't believe there's psychology that goes with your mood and anticipation is just blowin' smoke. The cigar did have an uneven burn the 1st 3rd, but self-corrected. Nice draw. This is a mild-med gar. Not a firm ash, but okay...and it was more black than white. Consistent throughout with some spice and a "grassiness" that I had a hard time putting my finger on, other than this must be the 'Cuban' flavor that makes them unique. I thoroughly enjoyed this given my anticipation and my setting. Don't think I'd spend the $$$ it takes an American to get a box...but, I definitely recommend for special occassions.
