Overall this is a very impressive offering by Bellody and Quesada. It delivers a bold cigar with a nice flavor profile. I will say the best way to experience this boldness is by retro-haling on the cigar. I’ve also found that this is a cigar that responds very nicely to age. When I first smoked this four months ago, while it was a good cigar, it was still rough around the edges. Now this cigar is really coming into its own – and it’s quite enjoyable. Given its boldness, it’s a cigar I would recommend for an experienced cigar enthusiast. As for myself, this one is a box worthy cigar.Wrapper: Ecuador Habano 2000
