Review Notes: Bought a box of these guys based on some of the reviews which used such adjectives as "tasty", "rich", "powerful" and "fruity". They certainly looked the part sitting in the cedar cabinet. Sure enough, I couldn't resist temptation while transfering them to my humi'. They look gorgeous with beautiful, silky, light tan wrappers. A nice solid feel, not too firm and not too soft. Lighting is a breeze and draw and burn are just perfect; very steady and even with a nice, solid, light grey ash. No problems in the construction department here. Where I did have a problem is with the flavor -- or rather the lack of it. This ranks as probably one of the mildest cigars I've ever had. Sure it was there but I felt I had to concentrate to discern anything -- maybe very mild tobaco and honey. I kept waiting for things to develop but nothing was forthcoming - even right down to the band and beyond. I was seriously impressed with the even burn and ash development though -- a joy to look at! I'm hoping the remaining 24 will soak up some more flavor from the other smokes sitting in the humi' or maybe the remainder will have more flavor? Did I get a bad batch? The dealer in Switzerland seemed legit and the packaging passed all the tests so I don't thing they're fakes either - especially with the high quality of the construction.
