I gota say this is for the most part the epitome of a stellar maduro. Beautiful burn and ash with incredible retention, the gorgeous peppered and chambered straight tube of ash naturally feel twice, once just past the halfway mark and then at the finger burning finish. Just a hint of sweetness through out mixed with bold constant and balanced flavors of espresso, dark chocolate and some earth. Really nice looking dark wrapper with little to no flaws. the only thing I did not like was the buzz.. I smoked it slow as to avoid it and although it was not as bad as some that I have experienced I still got it and I simply hate that feeling... However the flavor was so good it made up for that one con. This is def THE maduro for the full bodied fans.
