"The mighty little one"
Wow, what a power horse -- you definitely feel it on the retro hale! This is one of the strongest sticks I've had, definitely full bodied.
Taste was mostly wood and strong ligero, and some black cherry on the last third.
Burn was perfect right out of the humidor, with no dry boxing necessary, and draw was excellent through a bullet hole.
Cracked just a little around the midpoint.
Lasted for about an hour.
Great, strong stick, but I wish it had more flavor.

It started off with a lot of spice and a zing that coated my whole mouth. But after the 1st third the flavors and complexity really came through. Flavors of spice, chocolate, coffee, expresso, bread, and what I feel was a small hint of dried fruit. I smoked this down to less then an inch and the smoke was still cool and never harsh. Definitely a box buy!

"At first i thought it was neglect"
It turns out that this just refused to stay lit. As someone else noted, the natural starts off spicy, but calms down after about half an inch. The construction, draw and appearance on this little cigar were all above par. But the burn... just didnt cut it for me. Yes, the ash was a solid and gray, but for whatever reason, it just didn't want to stay lit. The first time it died, i thought it was due to neglect, but after re-lighting, it died on me once more within five minutes. Now, im no expert, but I've had 90 cent cigars with better burn characteristics. Sorry, i can not find myself going there again with that price tag. Not comparing the two, as they are in two different leagues, but i'll stick to Grand Reserves for that price.

I Had a Padron serie 1926 #9 maduro earlier in the week and since then I've been dying to try this. It had only been in my humidor for 5 days but it felt fine, so I tried it. It is a fantastic little cigar. The natural started off slightly spicy then gradually softened to a more subtle but wonderful tobacco aroma and taste with creamy chocolate notes. I like a cigar that satisfies without overpowering leaving me looking forward to the next one and that is what these babies do. My hat is off to Senor Padron for the best two cigars that I have had in one week.

I love these cigars as much as opus x or hemingway's....I could smoke these all the time if they were cheaper....but then what would You Guys smoke?
