    Wait a minute here are we talking about the same cigar? I tried 3 of these about 2 weeks ago to give it a fair shot. my eval: Appearance–the girl you see at 2:AM in the bar.
    Construction–tad loose but on all 3 loose spots.
    Flavor–not bad (it did have a hint of vanilla)basic for the most part with a small burst in the middle(very small) if you blink you’ll miss it.
    Value– sorry too many better for the price, will take it if its free or a door prize
    Overall rating– pleasant but don’t call me I’ll call you.

    Nicely put Gerry. But this cigar happened to be a one night stand that I turned into a relationship!

    Aaron, I think you nailed this one. I too was drawn to this one more out of curiousity than experience. Smoked like a dream (IMHO) – and for a newcomer to cigar smoking, it was great to find a stick that embodied all the things I believed cigar smoking was about.

    I’m still rather new to cigars and I had one of these yesterday.( I was a little worried because, a week ago, the head managed to soak up a bit of distilled water that I’d spilled on it when recharging my humidifier. Before I lit it, I removed it from the humidor and put it in a zip-bag with a cedar-skirt from a King B the day before as my way of ‘dry-boxing’)

    Wow,the volume of smoke from this cigar was amazing.Even though my palette is still untrained, I found the first third the most complex and flavorful third I’ve ever had. I think I caught notes of coffee, caramel, and cedars hopping in and out. I loved it.

    Aaron, you’re spot on about this short robusto. Not the prettiest girl at the prom but well built, consistent, tons of great flavor and an exceptional value. What more can we ask from a 50-60 minute smoke?

    Took the chance to try a robusto version of this cigar from a sampler supplied by AC. A review would be very similar to the comments on the short robusto posted above. The fuller version was very peppery/spicey though. Probably a bit too much for my taste buds, but fans of that profile will really enjoy the robusto size as well.
