I never thought of buying one of these at the price, but I was
gifted one by a friend in Long Beach. As you
can see it was a beautiful stick. The wrapper was a clean with very light veins.

I clipped the cap and took a dry draw to reveal light spice before
even lighting it up. I had only seen one of these before and was
fascinated by the Cuban Pigtail. Nicer than what I was used to. A beautifully
rolled vitola as a work of art.
As I lit my cigar and I had my first taste revealing a slightly creamy
with a little spice. The burn was a little uneven with a medium gray ash.
The burn corrected itself quickly. I was surprised at that but as I progressed into the first portion, I started to get the strength of this stick. I was glad that I ate before this one. The ash started to grow, still
sturdy at this point. The smoke was dense and the flavor, awesome.
As I entered the second third, I was still amazed at the spice on my tongue.
Very potent with lots of flavor. Nothing like the Siglo line.
Entering the third part, and realized that I had been smoking this stick
for over an hour. The stick had a small ammonia moment, but it disappeared
quickly. The finish was excellent.
Here's the weird
part. I was driving from Whittier to San Diego while I smoked this cigar.
The trip was a trip...
All I can say was that my expectations were exceeded. If you like Cohiba
on Steroids, you definitely need to try one.
