Review Notes: This cigar has actually been aging for quite some time now, years actually - I just never got around to smoking it. This cigar had a slightly rough, medium brown coloured wrapper and was pretty well built from just looking (and feel). This cigar changed characters 3 times throughout it's burn. The first puff from this cigar dominated my mouth with almost pure coffee and cocoa flavour. This lasted for maybe 5 or 6 puffs and then gave way to a slight cocoa flavour with a pleasant bitterness to it. This bitterness built and built and pretty soon, it was quite bitter. Since I was only one inch into the cigar, I decided not to put it out, seeing if it will change characters. Suddenly, about an inch and a half into the cigar, it completely opened up to the nose and the bitterness toned down a little. The nose was simple remarkable. It was extremely sweet smelling, not unlike caramel or cotton candy, but what surprised me the most was how floral it was! It literally smelled like a bouquet of flowers. The flavour, however, didn't display the same change in character. It was still bitter, but the sweet smell of the smoke balanced it out and at some points, it tasted really sweet too - but mostly it was bitter. It had a perfect burn. I actually lit it incorrectly which resulted in an uneven burn but it corrected itself. Though the cigar didn't display much flavour, I couldn't get enough of the aroma. It was just too amazing. Usually I describe delicious cigars as a meal, but tonight is the first time that I can say I had a meal through my nose. Slightly recommended. Don't aim for great flavour, but do try it out to see if you get the same results in aroma as I did.
