Review Notes: Beautiful looking cigar with a nice old world band. A bit gaudy but old school and acceptable. Hard bunching uniform through the length of the cigar. Leading to a potential tight draw. Very attractive dark natural honduran wrapper with a nice oily sheen and well made cap. Wrapper has a rustic and sungrown appearance. Prelight draw is a bit tight and provided a subtle barnyard scent. Initial aroma is very feint. Initial puffs upon lighting provided a full rich heavy bodied flavor of sweet tobacco, wood and earth. The draw is a bit tight and smoke volume could be better, but the flavor is rich and without spice. Rich Honduran flavors reminiscent of the old Don Melo Centanario. No spice, but medium to full bodied rich heavy sweet woody tobacco flavor. I wish the draw was better so I could get more smoke through the cigar. Drying them out a bit does help the draw. The cigar burned evenly and produced a solid medium grey ash. This is a slow burning stick with a medium length loamy and sweet tobacoo finish. The aroma is sweet with a touch of spice and very enjoyable. I keep saying to myself that the tight draw is holding this cigar back. This is definitely not a cigar that you can punch. You need to cut the head in order to increase air flow as the roll is too tight and hinders the draw. This is a rich mild-medium strength, medium - full bodied smoke that is hindered by a tight draw, which doesnít allow all the flavor and strength to break through, The last third picked up a touch of spice, but otherwise stayed pretty consistent throughout the cigar.
