/Cigar Reviewer André
I went halves on a box of these with a friend of mine. The two I have smoked so far were fantastic. The construction and draw were perfect, and the burn nice and even each time. Despite these being ‘young’ albeit with the already aged tobacco, the flavour was delicious. Woody and meaty to start with that monte tang, building up to quite a spicy finish. I liked the gauge of these and smoked it with a V cut, but was left wanting more at the end….hence why I lit up two back to back! I hope I can hold restraint and keep the rest to age a bit. Definitely one of my favourite cigars to date.
