REVIEW NOTES

Positive + + On the outside this cigar had a wonderful appearance with a rich, dark wrapper and decent smell. + The overall appearance and construction were great as there weren't any cracks or veins visible in the wrapper. + Burn time, for a cigar this size, I thought it lasted exceptionally long (upwards of 1.5 hours). Negative - - Unfortunately this cigar fell short in the flavor and aroma category. After I got the cigar lit and burning for about 5-10 minutes there was a very unpleasant taste and odor. The smell was similar to stagnant pond water and the taste was simply awful. -And after smoking, I could not get the acrid taste out my mouth. It took a full day (including 2 meals and 3 rounds with toothpaste and mouthwash) before I could finally get the taste out of my mouth....never again. Overall: Even though I don't normally smoke maduros, I wanted to try something new and I tried this cigar three separate times. Each time I got the same results - not a good flavor or aroma. I would not buy this cigar again due to it's foul taste and aroma after lighting. For now I guess I will stick with CAO MX2, CAO VR or Graycliff 1666 for my maduro cravings.
