    I had one in my humidor for about 8 months and finally decided to smoke it this past weekend. I was disappointed in the cigar. My experience was basically the same as yours. Sometimes I found the spice a little too much but that would come and go. I couldn’t say for sure that I picked up any notes of chocolate and the coffee was extremely faint. As with your smoke the final third took on a taste that I did not like. I took a few more puffs just to see if it would change, but didn’t. At that time I put it to rest. I wouldn’t but buy it again.

    I’ve smoked 2 of these and those will be it for me. Both had a charcoal taste in the background that didn’t do it for me. I also experienced burn problems. One wouldn’t stay lit after half the cigar was smoked.

    I think this is a great every-day smoke. It was very highly rated a couple years ago by CI, and the first time I smoked one it had loads of flavor. In fact, prelight is like sticking your nose in a bag of Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips…real yummy! Also, it wasn’t until I smoked one and liked it so much that I found it was rated so highly.

    Having said that, they’re not consistant smokes, but for the price they’re very good IMHO. You can get a box of these online for about $2 a stick at most reputable tobacconists…very good price for a stick that was rated 94 a few years ago.

    For $2 each for a box so $40? I would have to agree with you Handypilot. I still don’t think I would smoke it again though.

    I have had one sitting in the humi since May. I glance at it every so often, but never pull the trigger. I am eager to give a try, just for something different. Thanks again, love the site!

    OK…it looks like I lied. I just checked some prices and it looks like they’re about $3 a stick. For some reason I thought I payed less for my box.
