Review Notes: These are quite a bit darker than their belicoso cousin and their flavor is similarly varied. I must start by admitting that I am not a small cigar fan. Smaller cigars don't open up and change enough for my liking. Consequently, I make every effort to keep the one dimensional nature of a smaller smoke out of my head as I reach for the smaller cigar and as I smoke it... This box of cigars (yes I've smoke about a box of these) was particularly dark and beautifully oily. The burn was good, only a few sticks had early draw problems (only slightly) - I later realized that this "problem" was really due to the lack of thick smoke I am accustomed to with an Opus X or Padron. Flavors are good - pleasant and smooth. I do notice that this cigar is difficult to smoke past the band due to the build up at the tip leading to a rather unpleasant bitter taste (common among smaller sticks). The value of the cigar is good - not too pricy. However, at this price other cigars are better. I'm not sure about the aging potential of this cigar, but I'm trying anyway and I'll keep you posted.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (3) No (6)
