I've been saving it for a special occasion and then finally decided to light it up tonight after 2+ glasses of a 14.5% ABV wine, which made tonight a memorable night, especially after ending up chatting with a guy wearing the $1,500 Google glasses!
Construction was outstanding, reminiscent of Oliva Master Blends 3; very tightly packed, making for a tight draw even after a full guillotine cut.
The cold draw and aroma on the foot hinted of the woody flavor to come, which was joined by pure cocoa notes, with medium-to-full nicotine. Got smoother around the midpoint.
An excellent cigar, smooth for a maduro; went well with a spice -- however, at this price I'd much rather get the Padron 1926 #35. [90-91 points]
