    Nice review Joe and I agree with everything you said about it.

    I absolutely agree. I had one a couple of weeks ago and it moved right to the top of my list of favorite cigars I’ve smoked, as well as top of my want list for more! I just wish I could afford more of them, they’re a bit pricey for the average Joe.

    To date, this is my favorite cigar. I believe our palletes and preferences are similar. My favorites are this “shark”and the hemingway as well. Great review.

    My local B&M has these for $15, and they’re going fast. I picked up a fistful for a special occasion next summer; assuming I can hold out that long I expect they’ll be a real treat.

    My Review of the #48 (7 x 48)

    Wow. What a great smoke. The Añejo #48 is a beautifully presented cigar with a cedar wrapped foot accented by a blood red ribbon wrapped around the very bottom. The wrapper is very dark with a little tooth and very few tiny vines. There were not soft spots in this cigar which was well filled with no rib veins visible in the foot or the head. A pre-light draw delivered spicy notes and the wrapper left a slightly sweet taste on the lips. The cigar lit very easily and it had a nice easy to medium draw. This cigar produced a lot of thick white smoke. It was full-bodied and spicy on the tongue with just a hint of sweetness in the aftertaste. The finish was long and spicy. This was a powerful cigar too with an excellent buzz factor. After sitting for the first 45 minutes of this smoke, when I attempted to stand up for the first time, I almost fell right back down. This cigar made my knees a little wobbly. I enjoyed every puff of this cigar, all the way to the nub. Its impressive seven inches took me and hour and forty-five minutes to smoke, but admittedly I took a short break to eat a couple of slices of pizza. It was lasting a long time and a man needs food as well as cigars to survive.

    Gotta love “the shark!”

    I generally prefer smokes with ring gauges between 44-52. So this is generally my upper limit. I’m hesitant when ring gauges exceed 52 unless they are an outstanding smoke, such as the Anejo 77.

    I make a trip down to my local tobacconist every time Anejo shipments come in. Well balanced, spicy, complex and earthy notes throughout as well as some subtle plum flavors. Never had any problems with draw, burn or contruction.

    Arturo Fuente is slowly winning me over, although nothing will ever beat my beloved Padrons!

    So it seems the blend is pretty much the same in all the anejo vitolas. Does the shark smoke better than all the other vitolas or has this really just become more of a following than the #77 really being better than the other anejo vitolas?
