Review Notes: On two years rest. A roughly average looking CTBL wrapper, but it was rock solid head to toe. After a half inch, some tar began collecting at the head of the smoke, requiring me to clip a little more off. Odd, but it performed flawlessly thereafter. I didn't find this Anejo to be quite as dry on the palate as others I've had. Perhaps the age helped. A tingle of pepper and licorice throughout. I'm with icehog -- there was a slightly sweet, fruity tang on the front that's hard to pin down. The flavor verged on charriness at various points, but never crossed over the line. It's a meticulously crafted smoke, so it's hard to say I didn't get my money's worth, but these just don't blow me away at the price point. I'll continue to pick up a couple around this time each year, but they'll never be a go-to for me.
