The first thing I noticed on the cigar was the veiny wrapper. It’s not the smoothest wrapper in the world, but it does have a beautiful dark color to it. The band shows some age and the size is a Corona Gorda which is my favorite vitola.

Underrated Hermoso #4 reaps big-time dividends in the taste department. This stick was reputed to be a favorite of Mr. Frank Sinatra back in the 40's when he made regular trips to Havana.
