Review Notes: This is a good looking cigar with a nice uniform bunching and very dark oily wrapper. The wrapper is a dark reddish natural color, looking sungrown. The cigar sports a very well made cap. The band IMHO is a bit gaudy, big and not reminiscent of the bands of old. Prelight draw is good and produced just a subtle light tobacco flavor. Initial draws are good and produced an adequate amount of smoke volume. While there is a zesty pepper flavor, its not as powerful as the Habana Leon or Don Pepin. This more subtle pepper allows for a woody, sweet\sour flavor to emerge without being overpowered. You need to take multiple draws in order to get a nice flavorful mouthful of smoke. I wish the smoke volume was a bit better, as this seems to be a really nice well balanced cigar. The aroma is sweet and spicy, very enjoyable and the cigar produced a solid medium grey ash. The finish is long, lingering with cedar, spice nuts and wood flavors. The cigar developed some soft spots as it smoked and smoke volume ebbed and flowed. As I approach the half way mark, the flavor changes and picks up some toasty notes. This is a very enjoyable well balanced cigar of medium-full body and medium strength. With a box of 20 costing $83, these can easily be added to the rotation and will surpass the Bahia Trinidads.
