Before lighting up:
The pre-light draw tells us it will draw well and give a light cedar flavor. Sweet notes with some cedar hints, and a pleasant deep spiciness.
Even burn throughout and a mouth filling draw with billowing smoke.
The aromas that stand out in the first third are spices and leathery notes. After the first few draws, the cinnamon and ginger flavors are joined by coffee and cacao notes. The cigar is very well balanced in terms of flavors. All the spicy flavors are in full blown by the end of the first third.
The second third continues on the same path, with the addition of moist soil aromas that reveals the richness of the cigar. Many flavors start appearing, bitterness from coffee aromas, spice from cinnamon, sweetness from caramel. The burn is still perfect and the draw remains amazing as well.
The final third is once again incredibly rich. The mixture of spices and bitterness is still incredibly there, with notes of Asian spices and bitter chocolate. Herbal touches also start appearing towards the end, and all that makes a cigar that is hard to put down. This gem delivers it until the nub.
In summary, many aficionados claim this is the best cigar in the world, right up there with the Hoyo De Monterrey double corona.

The Maestro of Cuban cigars...
- Purchased from Cigar Terminal. Much has been said about this outstanding Cuban cigar. Argurably the best vitola in this format. This cigar was a bit young however, the potential is certainly there for greatness. This is a wonderful cigar for that warm spring afternoon. A very relaxing Habano with nuance of taste. Worthy of attention, it never ceases to amaze.
