I’ve always had mixed feelings about this cigar. I bought a box of these last August and I’ve smoked quite a few of them; however I have never been able to form a clear opinion about them. I picked up this particular box in the US and I have not been able to find them since. I am not very familiar with this brand and from what I can tell from when I purchased them, the red band is indicative of the H-2000 line (different wrapper) and was meant for the European market.

Santa Damiana is a Dominican brand now owned by Altadis USA. It has a rich history as it was born in Cuba in the beginning of the 20th century. I purchased this specimen in a cigar shop in Andorra and haven't found a single photo online that looked alike, so I can only assume that this is the new band of the #500 robusto. It can also be a European version of the cigar - who knows? Perhaps it's really time to sign Doc's petition...
