Review Notes: After seven months rest and a half box smoked, my initial impressions are unchanged. I've had a couple with construction issues (one disintegrated and one was plugged), but the others have been superb. Toothy wrapper glistens with oils. The right proportion of spice and sweetness, slightly bready, and a long, pleasant finish as noted by others. I'm not surprised by the unanimity of the reviews for this one. There's really nothing not to love, whether you started off as a Fonseca fan or not (and I didn't). Given this stick's med-full strength and considerable complexity, I expect it to have real aging potential. What more could you want for two-three clams?

Review Notes: I made the usual mistake of smoking a couple of these as soon as the box arrived. (Yeah, I know...) The burn and flavors were predictably uneven, but it was a promising smoke nonetheless. The one I had today, thirty days after their arrival, was outstanding. Nutty and smooth, but with increasing spice. Relatively strong by the end, but the emphasis is on flavor rather than brute force. Good now, with a bigger upside in time. And a superb value at auction pricing.
