Review Notes: A beautiful cigar. Smooth dark sheen to the wrapper. Rich potent pre light smell. Looking into the foot of the cigar, you can see the dark and massive tobaccos swirl together creating an amazing Pepin style blend. Perfect construction. Smooth smooth draw,perfect. Strong tobacco flavors at first. Lots of ceder and pepper after the first inch or so. After the halfway point, tons of earth and toasted wood notes take over your palate. As you reach the last third some strong leather flavor along with hints of chocolate are noticeable. Very complex. My box is dated Sept. 2006, so these have a long way to go before they are even close to prime. 6 + months will do the trick. Best if stored 63-64% humidity (corojo/ligero combo). Better than some of the Habanas I've smoked recently. Buy a box. Great value.
