Do flavored cigars lose their flavor over time?

Q. I know that most cigars improve over time by aging for a year or longer.But what about flavored cigars- specifically Isla del Sol?Will they lose their flavor if aged over long periods?
Thanks!

A. Good question. Like any other premium handmade cigar, they will mellow somewhat. Only you can tell the difference as you smoke them over time. However, I went right to the source for you on this one:

“They will NEVER loose flavor – period.”  – Jonathan Drew (Founder, Drew Estate Cigars)

How’s that for service?
