    Did you only smoke one cigar for this review? I have also had a few bad samples but most I’ve had are very enjoyable. I always find smoking just one cigar for a review a bad idea.

    I find this cigar very enjoyable. The flavor transitions from the many you will experience makes this one of my favorites. Agreed that the first 1-2 cm there is no real flavor but it just keeps getting better and better as the flavor awakens. I prefer to smoke this over some of the other medium bodied cigars in higher price ranges.

    Agree with the rest, I would revisit this cigar on another day, because I’ve had days where I reached for one of these over any of my Habanos boxes, just because I enjoy them. The aromas of these always make even non-smokers around me say holy cow that smells amazing. Not sure if you got a dud or your flavor preferences are just completely different, but I’m a bit shocked to say the least.

    I would have to disagree with this review all together having smoked a large number of these cigars. It sounds like you had a bad batch, or perhaps yours was dry before you even sparked it up. I have to say that these are among some of my most favorite full bodied strong cigars, perhaps you should find a new source and try again. This deserves another shot, as i had nothing but cedar light pepper and a lot of chocolate notes from pre-light draw to nub.

    I recently smoked one of these, purchased in 2013 and aged for over 3 years. It was very enjoyable and complex, with perfect construction. No nicotine strength left on it, but tons of flavor and a long finish. I did notice that I had to take good care not to overheat the cherry, as that very quickly washed out the flavors.
