I purchased this cigar for a nice long smoke that would last the night while I watched my friends band play a long set that night. I had smoked a few AB's in some of the smaller format's and was impressed with those sticks but was a little leary of this one being as nice as those but I thought what the hell, give a 60 ring a chance. Wow how I was suprised beings I usually find smaller ring gauges and such, usually work better for me on the higher end cigars that offer them in those sizes and then puts out a 60 ring just to fit in that market. This stick is nothing of the sort. This cigar made me step back and take notice with it's complexity throughout. Started out easy and sweet on the palate and then gets smoother and tastier from there. The burn was perfect all the way down with a varience of flavors from start to finish. Needless to say I enjoyed this big boy more than most of the 60 rings that I've had before. If you want a great 2 hour cigar go for it.
