Review Notes: I got these for a lot less than the MSRP and rightfully so. The appearance was similar to some of the Mexican cigars I've smoked in the past a bit mottled and veiny with a medium dark chocolatey wrapper but the cello and packaging was impressive. The cigar was also soft and spongey. I let this one rest for a month in my humi and I don't know if that was long enough. The construction was Ok. I lit this one noticed slight draw problems at first and a rather tart/bitter flavor initially (1st quarter). The flavor got better and I noted floral and coffee flavors. The cigar did not emit large volumes of smoke but stayed lit and burned evenly. This one developed some sweetness and oak flavors at the half way point. I also noticed some charcoal flavors towards the end. I think this a bit mild to medium in strength and if one likes strong cigars this isn't the one. I would rate this as a higher end yardgar or one for the course on a windy day. This isn't among my faves but it is slightly above average at least. I enjoyed the Figurado a lot more.
