Tight draw through a V cut, and surprisingly lacking in flavor. Wrapper came off shortly after lighting revealing some green spots on the binder. Draw then became a bit loose following a guillotine cut, seemingly allowing for air to come through. Burned for about 90 minutes.
Maybe it was a 93 points smoke back in 2006 CA #2 of the year , but this tasteless full body stick won t get more than 80 points from me today.

"An excellent cigar"
This cigar does it for me in all ways. Great appearance - lots of smoke, generally a consistent burn altho there are some re-light issues with this size. The flavor is nutty and intense and its aroma is magnificent. A true alltime favorite

"CIGAR AFFICIONADOS CIGAR OF THE YEAR"
BEING VOTED THE CIGAR OF THE YEAR BY CIGAR AFFICIONADO MAGAZINE SHOULD CERTAINLY SOLIDIFY WHAT ANYONE WHO HAS SMOKED THIS ICON ALREADY KNOWS....THIS IS SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL. THIS VITOLO JUST OOZES WITH CREAMINESS AND FLOWING ARBOURS OF COFFEE COMPLIMENTED HARMONIOUSLY WITH SUBTLE NUANCES OF NUTMEG AND SPICE. THIS ONE IS A SPECIAL TREAT AND SHOULD BE SAVOURED WITH A FINE BRANDY,SINGLE MALT SCOTCH OR WINE. TO THOSE FORTUNATE ONES......RELISH IN THE MOMENTS WITH THIS SOON TO BE LEGEND.

"Impressive, Interesting, Unique!"
I just finished one of these off and I must say I'm quite impressed. I was amazed at how well this cigar was constructed. It had a PERFECT draw! Not to tight not to loose. It lasted much longer than expected. The flavor was clean and sweet and paired nice with a fine cream sherry. I would say the experience the construction provided in comparison to every other cigar I've smoked made this cigar special. I'm hooked now!

This is a great smoke, it is a strong cigar in that it has a lot of flavor but it is not harsh, not overwhelming, very big cigar, very well aged, tons of flavor, beautiful pumpkin color wrapper, good for any smoker,
