Review Notes: Better looking than the stick I reviewed four months ago. Draw is firm but tolerable. Starting to develop some of the complexity I expected. Sweeter now, with more chocolate notes. The core remains earth and black peppercorns (past the first inch, anyway). If you can wait on these and live with some minor inconsistency, these are a worthwhile buy. My "value" score is largely speculative, as I'm confident of their long term upside.

"These need time"

Review Notes: A little crude in appearance, with an oily black wrapper and a poorly applied cap. Starts uneventfully, with a little CT Broadleaf sweetness and some trademark Honduran earthiness. The aroma is sharp, astringent. Flavor takes a sudden, agressive turn at the halfway point. No subtlety here; just earthy, peppery power with a dry finish. In fairness, I expect these to get better, develop a little balance and complexity. I have some older ERDM Flor de Llanezas that have matured beautifully, picking up some sweet cedar and hazelnuts. But these robustos have a long way to go.
