Review Notes: On two years rest, the Consul remains sharp and bitter with some chemical off notes. Age has fixed the wobbly burn and erratic draw, but not the flavor. I had hoped these would develop balance in time, but I'm beginning to lose faith. Generally a rough stick that lacks character.

Review Notes: I still find these to be one-dimensional and borderline harsh, even after 18 months of rest. If you like pepper, you'll love 'em. But if you're waiting for some other flavors to add some interest, you're out of luck. The Antano's draw is more consistent than the Celebracion, but otherwise I prefer the subtlety and complexity of the Celebracion line. It's not a question of "too strong" as much as it is an issue of balance. The Antano is like a Cajun dish in which the onion, garlic and celery were just replaced by more cayennes. Without belaboring the "strength vs. body/complexity" debate, I'll just say that the Antano deepens my appreciation for the blending artistry of the Bolivar RC, LTC Ann'y or Tatuaje.
