Review Notes: Received 3 singles as a gift; uncertain as to their age, but obviously stored well. Sampling the first: Under the tissue, the appearance is rustic, which I prefer, but not the best. Cut was perfect & revealed that Cuban scent. Putting it to my lips & tongue I was rewarded with a saltiness, actually more sea-salt in taste & an unusual dry feel for which I expected to find bits of short-fill tobacco on my tongue but there was none; strangely pleasant. Flavor starts out mature woody-nutty with very mild pepper undertones. Burn slowly gets uneven & occasionally required a touch-up but delivered plenty of smoke; surprising for its small size. By the 1/2 I realized a very decent nicotine buzz. Finishes pretty much as it starts. I expected a quick 20 minute smoke but 40 minutes later I put down the last inch to die out peacefully. I would happily buy these at $4 but shopping around you can get closer to half that; I will. An excellent way to end a good day, even if I'm not in the Caribbean.
