Review Notes: It's been a few days since I've worshiped at the altar of Pepin, and a couple of months since I've smoked an HL robusto, so here we go... Beautiful, with a perfect triple cap. No touchups necessary this time. Stabilization time has perfected the burn. Since removing these from their cello, they've predictably picked up some additional cedar. Plenty of cocoa on a (too) dry finish. Scant hints of the molasses I found on my first review, but trademark Pepin nuttiness shows itself in the second half. Doesn't compare with the A size from this line, which is one of more stunning sticks I've ever had. This one is merely good for a Pepin.

"Leather, wood and molasses"

Review Notes: Smoked one today right off the FedEx truck, and it burned like a champ. Full draw yielding copious smoke, requiring only minor touchups. I was bracing my tastebuds for a ligero beatdown, but it was quite smooth despite its full body. Straigtforward leather, wood and molasses, in that pecking order. One-dimensional but very, very good. "Eights" across the board, and I assume these will improve once freed from their cello and aged.
