First off I want to say that this stick I bought at a B&M I try to avoid but was downtown with the girlfriend and had no option. I was throughly impressed and went on to buy 5 more. This stick is on the long side so a little time is in store but if you do have the time it is one hell of a smoke to try.
First half - I got a nice little hit of pepper off the foot but shortly ended with nice woody notes for about an inch and a half, then after that I was nicely greeted by some nutty notes and coco. These notes followed throughout the first half with little back fires of pepper but just enough to keep you awake.
Second half – With this second half I got just the same notes as before but the woody and earthy notes became even more predominate. As I got to about the last third everything just became even richer and just popped. It became so richer and just all around delicious.
Overall this cigar is on my top 5 for next year and I have to say probably the best stick I have smoked this year. This box was dated 2009 so I think I am going to hold onto the others I got that were newer for a little and see if they are just as good. Thanks again and god bless all.
