I got these off the devil site for $4.00 each.
Resting for 3 weeks in my wineador @64% RH 66 degrees. (I couldn't wait any longer to try one)
Cigar Size: 6.5" x 60
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Filler: Nicaraguan long-fillers
Made for Savinelli by the Oliva Cigar Co. in Nicaragua.
Carlos Fuente Jr. and Sr. designed the Savinelli Special Selection 2005 cigars.
Appearance: The cigar has a great look in Figurado with a pig tail at one end and torpedo on the other. Very well made.
Pre-light: Excellent smell leathery and woodsy.
First 1/3: Once lit, the draw on the figurado opened up and had just the right amount of resistance. Flavor was rich and delicious right from the start. Good aged tobacco had a sweetness combined with coffee and leather. VERY nice so far.
Second 1/3: Razor sharp burn with a nice white ash. Flavors still rich with lots of flavor and a little nicotine but not too much at all.
Third 1/3: Cigar finished out with a long delicious finish. Some spice but not very peppery. Medium to full bodied.
Smoke time: Around 1 hour 45 minutes. (It's a full size cigar.)
A very good cigar that shouldn't be missed. Itís beautiful in appearance and construction. Leathery and woody start that develops into rich caramel and coffee flavors. The finish is long and somewhat spicy mixed with very little pepper and a touch of cherry. Perfect burn/perfect draw and a very reasonable price.
Yup, I liked it...a lot.
