REVIEW NOTES

4.75*, super rare by my system. Outstanding even for superior “ultraboutique” brand Casdagli - easily a top 10 or 20 list contender! Already aged 3-5 yrs before rolled and further age not necessary but initial patience greatly rewarded so let rest at least a month and 4 months humi time was perfect. Recommend first stick of day for freshest palate. First half with coffee then only water was great. Spectacular blend, best of ‘Cubanesque.’ Extremely complex but very nuanced & incredibly well-balanced btw both dark & light notes of long-roasted nuts, whip cream, graham, hay, wet earth, cocoa, milk choco, milked coffee - w/o bitterness or much pepper and spice even on retro, which is wonderful like the best Cuban! Very solid Medium strength in nicotine with Full body/texture/mouth feel. Flavors r pronounced and not overly subtle but not “strong” in the bitter sense. “Complex” in number and very wide range of flavors but straightforward, consistent, and individually discernible rather than subtle with few transitions. The only perfect 5* experience might have been dramatic transitions from light to dark notes then ending in a blended final third, but that has almost never happened for me! Katman review is on point re justified high price & much better value than the much more expensive Padron or Opus X.
