Review Notes: I've waited a couple of years and 7-8 boxes worth of smoking this cigar to write a review. In my opinion, you can't rate a cigar unless you've smoked some from different boxes. It's a natural product, there is variation. Having said that, for me this cigar is a sleeper worth collecting and aging. I've smoked the Larga and the Suprema. The presentation is really nice. The paper wrapping gives the stogie immediate identification. It's always a pleasure to give one of these to a friend who has not tried one. The wrapper is always consistent. Dark brown, almost black, and with a oily sheen. A little lumpy sometimes, but for me flavor is king. Flavors? Chocolate and mild coffee are the first flavors I find, without the usual bite on the tongue that many cigars offer ( I also smoke Rocky 90's, Gran Habano Corojo 5's, and about a dozen other regulars)....the Suprema never disappoints with a great start. This cigar does not smoke like a big-time maduro that makes your head spin, but it does give you the richness of a Maduro. For me, that's a plus. I don't like the nicotine buzz. The one weakness of these (and the Larga's) is the filler, which occasionally has gigantic veins, literally the size of match sticks. I had two or three in one box that tasted like a burning tire the last third of the stick. But overall, over the course of multiple boxes, that was an aberration. As far as ash and burn rate, I've never had a better cigar, including $30 Cubans. The ash is white and burns evenly on every cigar, every time. Bottom line is this is the best cigar on the market for the money, and 90% of the taste of any other high priced smoke.
