Review Notes: I hope this review finds its way into the hands of someone who is doing the same thing that I am doing now...reading top 25 cigar reviews smoking this elegant cigar and in 12 hours catching a plane to rocky point mexico for some much needed R&R. this cigar was gifted to me by the local graycliff distributer here in hawaii. his cigars are stored in a temp controlled herfador and they come directly from nassau. I'm finding that his cliffs are a cut above the ones that cbid sells in their 5 packs. the wrapper is darker, and the tobacco feels fuller than the 5 pack. The first half of this cigar was strong with a bit of an oily deisel taste. however now that I am I'm the second half I am getting flavors of mellow spice, fresh baked nutty bread, and the slghtest hint of menthal twang. I picked this as my morning smoke, and while it didn't dissaoint, this powerhouse would have been better suited with a scotch after a good steak dinner. Like other cliffs I have tried, they mix their tobacco into something that I have never tasted before. I am on the finish now heavy eucaliptus, combined with a dark tea and cinnamin nuances. The gar still proceeds to burn cool but the is a definate spice on my palate as the cigar ashh burns down towards the tip of the band. I really enjoyed this smoke. I have the next seven days to indulge in good food, and some monty edmundos, cohiba maduro 5's, cupido criollos, and for the golf course perhaps a couple of cuba libre robustos. yes cuba libre. I can appreciate a $3 on dimensional as much as any $25 stick. But back to the crystal...it has given me the perfect start to my vacation. when I smoke this cigar again, and I will because I have 5 more in my humidor, I will be reminded of how it felt to be treated to this well worth it impromtu piece of paradise.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (2) No (3)
