This cigar has always been underrated and this is most probably down to the fact that this cigar needs years of ageing to develop its real qualities. Very mild and often bland when new, after a process of around four years maturing, superb herbal flavours arise in good balance with the medium tobacco taste. On lighting the draw was excellent with plenty of smoke and the burn very good. Even when new, the last section had plenty of spice with woody notes and a complex taste of leather and wood. The burn was very even right down to the nub when I decided to finally lay it down!
