Some of the cigars arrived a little bit cracked at the bottom nothing to worry about, other than that,fantastic construction the burn is perfect,the flavor hits hard right fom the beginning wonderful aroma,tightly packed but hits like a freight train no draw problems from beginning to end, will benefit from ageing, by no means replaces the Romeo Churchill or the Cohiba robusto or Monte Cristo number 2 but if you want to jump outside to a new flavor profile you will not be disappointed,verry smooth hints of spice sweetness coco wonderful aroma,only 10 to a box,

Received a box of 10 about 3 weeks ago and smoked the first one last night. This is the first LCDH release I've tried of any maker. The box was Sept. 2014 production. Construction was excellent with no correction required to the burn. The draw was perfectly firm without being tight and the volume of smoke was outstanding. The notes that dominated the flavor profile for me were coffee and chocolate and that was right from the start. There were hints of spice in and out through the whole stick which I smoked down to about 1 1/2 inches before some bitterness started setting in. All in all an excellent experience. I'll probably wait until at least 2 years post production to light the next one. I'm expecting these to age into spectacular cigars.
Only 5000 boxes were produced of this 2011 Habanos release specifically for their La Casa del Habano shops around the world. This is a beautiful H.Upmann cigar which is flavourful in a medium strength. Not to be missed in the Upmann line.
