This double figurado is beautiful to look at. Perfect wrapper and color. The construction of this beauty is an art unto itself.
Before lighting up
Aromas of tobacco, leather & some spice.
Burn is even throughout and the draw is a little firm but opens up about midway.
Starts with light flavors of rich velvety dark cherries, vanilla and caramel.
Lets loose with flavors of cocoa, more vanilla and a creamy sweetness. Burns slowly and smoothly. More dark cherries hit the palate.
The best part starts with the final third with spice, leather and cream all in a homogenous blend of complexity. Full and rich, never harsh. Mouth-filling, and lush.
To summarize, this is an excellent cigar for any special occasion where time is of no consequence and the occasion is truly special.

Big and Beautiful
- This is one of the most stunning cigars I've ever seen. What a beauty? Almost didn't want to burn it because it looked so good. Glad I did. It was a wonderful smoke that lasted a little over 2 hours. If you haven't tried this before, please do yourself a favor.

Beautiful and tasty
- The Salomones are a beautiful cigar to hold and experience. Besides the unusual shape and nice smell they have a gorgeous reddish wrapper and usually burn fine. Tastes of leather and some hint of nuts for a smoke that is comfortable and enjoyable.
Long and tasty...
Great example of a Cuaba...
Mixed flavors of a Robaina and a Monte 2. Woody with some earthy and coffee tones. Most of the cigars were immaculate. Beautiful stick and a good 2 hours of smoke.
5 stars !!!

A Celebrity Cigar
Upon opening the box, you are quickly greeted with a stunning presentation of ten of the most beautiful cigars you could ever imagine seeing,
Appearing as if they were handcrafted from solid hardwood that was stained and shellacked in a gleaming cherry finish, the magnificent shape of these cigars is mind-boggling. They are literally perfect in every way to the naked eye.
Once in your hand, the solidly-packed cigar does not have the heft you would have imagined, but after lighting, that quickly becomes a non-issue. A mouthful of lush smoke is the first sign that this is going to be a wild ride. The earthy flavor of a true Cuban cigar is captured as you begin to assimilate the mixed bouquet of scents that emanate from the air. This collective aroma will tease your senses and delight your palate.
It burns amazingly cool for such a large cigar, and as even and straight as I have ever seen. Even though this cigar was not as heavy as I thought it would be, it still smoked slow and became even tastier toward the mid-section.
The strength of this cigar is somewhere between medium to full bodied, and for you Montecristo lovers, this is easy to smoke and is a step up in fullness. It never became harsh, nor did it leave any unpleasant aftertaste. Give yourself at least an hour and fifteen minutes to an hour and a half to enjoy.
This was my first Cuaba, and if they are all as good as this one, then I look forward to trying as many as I possibly can in the next few months. Yes, all the hoopla and rave reviews on this cigar are warranted.
