This cigar has a smooth appearance with small veins, and slightly oily wrapper. I bought my cigar from a store that lets the cigars age before they sell them. I let mine sit an additional 6 months in my humidor and upon lighting the cigar I was delighted with strong pepper and leather notes. the notes became smooth and turned into a leather and anise flavour. the draw was tight at first, and soon became easier with thick creamy smoke. I can see how this some might not like this cigar as it does start off rather strong, however after letting this sit I was delighted and I think that is the key with this one.

I just read the review from the guy who didn't like these, and I'm surprised by the negative review. You have to be really careful with your expectations when a cigar gets a high rating like these did. The T11's are definitely worthy of their rating. CA hit the nail on the head with this one. Very complex flavor, and the typical qualities that get the top rated cigars their ratings. I was very impressed, smoking both a few from my local store, and with the box I bought from famous-smoke.com as well. If you regularly smoke 94 rated cigars and like them, you will like this one. If you typically think their ratings are bs, don't bother.

I read an impressive review in THE biggest cigar magazine that gave this cigar a rating of 94 so I had to have a box. The first cigar I smoked was ok. The second one I smoked burned very poorly as did the third one. The magazine that rated the cigar said that it had a, "perfect burn and draw". I don't know who the person(s) were that rated this cigar or what they were thinking but they sure missed the mark on this one. As far as the, "rich and dense smoke", described in the magazine goes, I couldn't tell by the way the burn ran down the sides of both the second and third ones I smoked. I had to light up an Ashton ESG just to get rid of the lousy taste this cigar left. I can't even say that I got what I paid for.
