Pre-light: Veiny, slightly mottled darkish wrapper. No hard or soft spots. Muted tobacco aroma. Draw seemed just a bit north (tighter) than ideal. No remarkable unlit flavors.

First 1/3:

First impression was that this was going to be a stellar experience. Great tobacco flavors. Perfect through the nose. Yeah, peppers, what did you expect? Great balance. Definitely not past its prime in strength.

Second 1/3:

Velvet glove on the palate with a pin cushion through the nose. Loved it. No complex nuanes that I could discern. Resisted the temptation to smoke it fast, like a handful of Reese's Pieces. Ash was dark charcoal and flaky.

Final 1/3: You have to love a 9 or 10 year old cigar that hasn't become pussified over time. Cedar and pepper were constant from start to finish. Huge volume of very satisfying Cuban cigar taste. Nice buzz.

Conclusion: Four smoke rings. Only a relative lack of nuance, complexity and variability kept it from five.
