I did not like this cigar for about the first inch of burn. The taste wasn't traditional or relative to any cigar I'd ever had. The closest cigar I can compare it to would be the Macanudo Especiale. Needless to say by my score, I ended up enjoying the cigar very much. Being 7 inches long it was easy to get used to the distinct taste and eventually grow fond of it.
