Review Notes: This is the after-dinner smoke for those who think the JdN Antanos is a breakfast smoke. Nice months since my last one, and they're still improving. Starts with a blast of clove that dissipates quickly. The base flavor seems woodier now, but the other, more interesting flavors (see review below) remain without the overwhelming black pepper. Don't get me wrong -- this is still a VERY powerful stick. But it comes into balance a little more each time I try one.

"A lethal weapon"

Review Notes: After better than two years in the humi, this thing is still a brute. Maybe the strongest cigar I've ever smoked. The first third is the star of the show. Rich and complex, with dark chocolate, coffee and, as its name suggests, pepper. By halfway, that complexity gives way to -- you guessed it -- more pepper. This thing will smack you around, singe your nosehairs and make you ears ring. Keep a tall glass of something cold nearby. On balance, it's a little much for me, but it certainly doesn't lack character. The good news is that in a couple more years, this behemoth might be just right. Meanwhile, I might hand some out to unsuspecting newbies to satisfy my sadistic side.
