Review Notes: On two years rest. Spongy, no soft spots, and an even coating of plume. This is the Mex version of the Habana 2000 wrapper, but you wouldn't know it by the appearance or burn properties. Thinly veined, supple and chocolate brown instead of the reddish hued H2K grown in Nicaragua. Well built with a dense ash. Toasty, easygoing. Peanut flavors come and go. Leather builds in around the halfway mark, as does a pleasant trace of earth. More interesting than the stick I reviewed six months ago. The value is still dubious, but this is a nice all-around smoke.

Review Notes: The Russian nesting doll of the cigar world... you have to navigate through the painted box, an equally elaborate tube, a cedar sleeve with two bands... whoa... there IS a cigar in here! One you get over being pissed about two-thirds of the price being squandered on the packaging, this is an enjoyable smoke. The wrapper is nearly devoid of veins and even in color. The build is outstanding. Flavor is smooth, toasty, refined. With its Mexican wrapper and Peruvian fill, I expected this to have a little more punch, but I would characterize this as a breakfast or maybe a lunch smoke. Not my bag, necessarily, but still an above average mild-medium smoke. Beyond the obvious value issues, there's not much to complain about here.
