i ve been wanting to try one of these of a while and I finally had the chance this past week. After having a string of disappointing cigars lately I went in expecting to be fully disappointed, but thankfully I wasn t. The flavor of this cigar is fantastic - overall one of the best flavor cigars I ve ever had. It s spicy, chocolaty and a little hit of sweetness that makes it pure enjoyment from start to finish. I was a little disappointed with the ragged edges I had during the smoke and during the 2nd third it got plugged up. Now this could have been the fault of the place where I bought it which had a humidor that seemed overly humid. This made the draw very difficult for the 2nd half, but those issues aside - which I blame on storage not the cigar - it was a fantastic smoke. I eagerly await the opportunity to smoke one of these flavorful beauties again. I hate the Arturo Fuente Magnum R, so I was very happy to discover this has a lot more flavor than that. I also was pleased that it was a medium body so while I got buzzed it didn t make me want to puke, even though I was smoking on an empty stomach and it was my second of the evening .
One of the best cigars for the money. I kept this in the humidor for about 45 days before smoking my first. You will not be disappointed.
I have loved this cigar for a long, long time. It is truly extraordinary. From the comfortable feel of its box-pressed body to the exquisite mild-spice, rich on the palate flavor to the lingering creamy finish on the lips, this is one to be enjoyed by those who have developed an appreciation for the subtleties of a fine cigar and have the patience to experience it.
