If aged right it'll be a great cigar to smoke, other than that an enjoyable experience!!
The cigar was nice out of the box; however, they are aging wonderfully. The first few that I smoke were a bit tight. Aging has allowed them to loosen up and the flavors to meld and mellow. They are a nice Cuban. Leathery with tons of creamy smoke. All-in-all a nice smoke.
So here i am very rarely handing out 10's on the rating system. I am torn between ruining my record by handing a 10 out or not... Guess every record is meant to fall!!!
So guys and gals this cigar is incredible. I have smoked many cigars,MOST OF THEM you cant smoke fresh, especially a cuban. this cigar? YES YOU CAN. even fresh made (feb 09) it has a distinct taste. starts off with a spicy hint, and smooths out to almost chewing on leather. ITS INCREDIBLE, the size is a beefy cuban, the length is perfect perfect. cant tell you how impressed i am. the outter leaf has not 1 flaw! and the draw is incredible. cant believe out of all the cigars i have bought from you guys this one is the one that gets 10's. IM SURPRISED! (please note only reason there is a 9 rating in the flavor is because the cigar is very freshly made, another 6 months and its a 10)
Rich tobacco flavor and that great Upman tang, leather, cedar, cocoa, slightly salty and piquant.
I too was drawn to this cigar by some saying it was the closest to the Sir Winston. Since I didn't want to pay the price of the Sir Winstons, I opted for these. I have to say, I'm a bit dissapointed at this time. I have had draw problems. Problems staying lit. Flavor is somewhat bland. Spongy feel. I'm sure they will improve and perhaps they need some time to rest as I think they feel young. I put the rest that I had in the back of the humidor and will come back to them in the fall time to see what changes have taken place.
