The guy at my local B&M store introduced me to these, and am I ever glad he did. He convinced me when he told me they are his favorite smoke in the whole store. They're close to my favorite too. I found this cigar to be very favorably comparable to a Fuente Chateau, somewhat similar in flavor, and definitely a better burn and draw than the Fuente. Leather, some spice, some earthy flavors, and a good long smooth finish. Overall a very pleasurable smoking experience, and if I was forced to pick only one cigar to smoke for the rest of my life, this one is right up there in the top two or three candidates. Good morning, noon or night, I could recommend them to anyone - and actually I do. Now I'm bummed out because Famous is "out of stock" on these babies.

"Good all-day cigar"
Wrapper was consistant and smooth. The cap was tight and finished nicely, 2-blade cutter openned even and intact. The aroma was good with tones of fruity sweetness(peaches) and a slight leathery note. The foot was abit uneven but not overly notiably. A match & spill light, which once toasted started nicely but slightly uneven. Draw was good and tight but not excessive. 1-minor touch-up to keep even burn. taste was good and complex but medium in strengh (my opinion it''s mild-med.) Was a tastful and steady smoke even through 2/3rds fruity still apparent under tones of leather and cedar. The last 1/3 was cool and slightly more spice and more cedar was noticable. A consistant and good aroma, though changing slowly to a leather and light nutty taste. With minor tastes of a dry sweetness. Slightly tanic on finish. Mid-Morning light-up; enjoyed a cup of dark roast coffee and a pecan tart. Nice cigar anytime of day. If you like med. strengh and lot of taste try it it's decent.
