Review Notes: well, what can i say? i smoked one of these tonight, and it was not my first. its not something i smoke all the time, but when i do i'm always blown away by it. i've only had the double ligero in the maduro wrapper, and only had the ligero in the natural wrapper. maybe thats why i prefer the double maduro. but this cigar, despite its size, is more satisfying than almost any other cigar out there. strong, rich, smooth, enjoyable. it would be better with a wider ring gauge, but i'm far from rich and this was $6 as it is. straight out of the box (or rather, straight out of the shop's humidor) it approaches the ashton heritage puro sol, VSG, or fuente's opus x in strength, flavor, and appearance. i definitely get the feeling that with a bit of aging, maybe a year or so, this cigar would be entirely unequalled for the price. i'm considering buying a box next time i have some money to spare, just so i can age them and have some unspeakably wonderful cigars for the price of good cigars (plus the price of patience) they look beautiful, and the draw is amazing. i am no expert, but i am under the impression that the chisel shape helps improve the draw. the burn started uneven, but corrected itself with little effort and no relighting. gave me as much nicotine as most full bodied churchills, yet the size is pretty much that of a corona. full, rich flavor, but i do prefer the wider ring gauges on this cigar. if the company aged it a little longer, it would be among the best cigars on the market, up there with the higher end gurkhas, ashtons, fuentes, and others. but then again, if the company aged it longer, it would be more expensive. for a budget-minded coinnesseur, this line is a must buy if you have the patience for aging. if you plan to get a box for immediate smoking pleasure, you can find bigger and equally satisfying cigars for less.
