Review Notes: Mine are approaching three years old. Better now than 10 months ago, but still only a tick above average. The sharp notes are gone, and it had a nice black coffee w/sugar section in the middle third. Finish is on the short side. It's fine, but I somehow keep thinking they're going to be better.

"An underachiever"

Review Notes: When these were young, they were unbalanced, bordering on harsh/sharp. Now, despite ample age (two years +), these flavors never quite pull together. Mostly charry with occasional hints of molasses and licorice. Short finish. A stumper, really, because all the ingredients are there -- a juicy broadleaf, fat ring gauge, requisite oomph. But these smokes seem destined to underachieve. There are a good dozen maduros that deliver more at or below this price point -- the Sancho Panza and Padilla Edicion Especial, to name just two.
