Review Notes: B500 (5x50) purchased in Nov 2006. Dark oily wrapper w very dark colored filler. An attractive cigar with an attractive band, but as with the Trinidad line, the extra line on the bottom stating made in Nicaragua should go. Prelight aroma is a musty smell, and not overly appealing. Prelight draw really didn't discern much in the way of flavor. Good draw with excellent thick smoke volume. Initial flavors are similar to the Deseo line, but not as peppery, more muted and heavier with out as much of a nicotine kick. Actually the more muted peppery tones make for a better tasting cigar IMHO. A heavy earthy flavor with mushrooms and a non overbearing zesty peppery flavor. The finish takes on a more woody taste and is medium length. 2nd third picks up some cedar notes with the last third having the spice tone down a bit. This smoke is not as strong as the Trinidad or Deseo line, but I actually like the qualities of this cigar better, with the Trinidad coming next. Not overly complex, but enjoyable. Burn is straight with a very solid dark grey ash. This isn't the cigar to select if you are looking for a spicy kick or something fairly strong. However, I found it very enjoyable, with just enough flavor and light spice to keep it interesting. There is almost a Latakia like flavor and scent within this cigar. Latakia, for those who may not know is a middle eastern (Syria, Cyprus) pipe tobacco know for strength and an somewhat burning tent like aroma. While the aroma in the Blu is much nicer I did find some similarities. This smoke was very enjoyable with a cup of coffee.
