Review Notes: Six months rest hasn't changed this one much. Woody and somewhat sweet. I taste the corojo filler more than the maduro wrapper. One-dimensional on the first half before picking up hints of coffee and licorice later. I think less of the construction than I used to, however, since I've had one or two burn poorly. Further, I found that a couple wrappers were nicked and patched. Of the two Edicion Especiales, I still prefer the Achilles. Now, the burning question about the Obsidian is this: Who made it for Padilla? I have a guess, and I'm hoping someone out there can confirm or correct. To me, this tastes like a Gran Habano product. And since 6x54 is one of GH's signature vitolas...

Review Notes: Oily, dark and brawny with a hefty pack. As other reviewers note, it isn't as powerful as it looks, but it's a far tastier stick than I was led to believe. I found the flavor to be quite complex. A sweet woody core and the familiar corojo richness (this thing is apparently loaded with Honduran corojo filler), with touches of pepper, licorice and earth. The burn was slightly crooked, but it never got out of hand. Draw was generous throughout. At under $3 a pop at auction, I couldn't have asked any more of this smoke. I've been really impressed by both Edicion Especiales. Their build is average or better, the value is outstanding, and the flavors are unfailingly interesting. This one's a definite winner.
