Such an affordable smoke yet it will smoke with the best of them. I ve got 1,000 cigars are so and have smoked around 10 of these and handed another 10 out so I can say these are worth trying if you have not yet. Once you have you ll see why Cigar Aficionado ranked these as the best cigar in 2012. I ve got 2 boxes stashed to age and 1 box I m burning. I wont get into the flavor as that will differ with all of us but I have enjoyed every one I ve smoked. And everyone I ve given one too double taked by the first third to say WOW what a smoke. But honestly I hope you don t enjoy it so the price can stay low?
This is one of my favorite cigars. The construction and appearance are fantastic, along with the draw. Burn is pretty good as well, and the construction is great too. Ash color is a dark gray. Taste is pretty good--a lot of spice in the first third, with the slow addition of cream and sweetness. If the cigars are a bit harsh at first, let them air or age them a bit. The box I received was definitely entering the sick period. Overall very good cigar, and everything came in great condition.
