I am a huge fan of the Churchill vitola from this vintage.  This week Stogie Santa recommended that I revisit this smoke.  It started out wiht a nice blast of pepper, despite the fact that it is a couple years old at this point. That pepper disapated after about an inch.  Then it turned into a cream bomb.  The cigar had nice changes and was nicely balanced.  I still think that I prefer the Churchill, but this smoke is worth a box split.
