"Deserves a second chance"
I also recieved this in a 3 pack Gigante sampler. I saved it for last, really looking foreward to it. After resting in my humidor for a couple of weeks I figured it was time. Wrapper was beautiful, wonderfully constructed, truly a beautiful cigar. I believe my only mistake was using a punch on this cigar, as the wrapper split about an inch up from the head, making it kind of difficult to smoke. But, apart from that difficulty, it is a very delicious cigar. It starts mild to medium, with light peppery flavors, and matures to a full, thick, sweet, woody flavor with light peppery after tastes on the tip of your tongue. While it won't be the next cigar I buy, it is still on the list.

I got this in a sampler pack, and was looking forward to trying such a large cigar, but it was a great disappointment. It was rolled very loosely, and kept burning inconsistantly, it had a decent taste, but nothing special.
