"An absolute dream"
I picked up this cigar on a glowing recommendation from the owner of a terrific cigar shop in Las Vegas. I WILL be buying a box. This cigar is simply one of the best I've ever had. A wonderful and easy draw, a beautiful complex flavor, the ash was long and beautiful, and the burn was perfect. I cannot recommend this cigar enough. I must say, it was a perfect smoke for a perfect place. I spent almost an hour smoking it while admiring the dancing fountains in front of the Bellagio Casino on the Las Vegas trip. This cigar made an amazing night perfect.

"Best of the Best"
Ranks right up there with Opus X and Cohiba Robusto (the tradtional variety) at the top of my all-time favorites list. Much more potent than your average Ashton, everything about this cigar is top notch. It has a complex spicy flavor that especially delivers up front, much like a dry wine. I rated the appearance at a "9" because it tends toward streakiness in its coloration, but that's a small price to pay. One of the few cigars on the market that I'm not afraid to shell out more than 10 bucks for.
