I've been a fan of this company ever since they were called Tabacalera Tropical, and I'm always interested in trying (and buying) cigars made in the USA.

This is a nice looking cigar. Well-rolled, no lumps, heavy in the hand and an easy draw.

First few draws...spice blast. Full "strength", spice in the nostrils, tangy finish.

About 1" in...spice still present on the draw, wood and floral in the nose, woodsy finish. As I type with the cigar between my teeth, the aroma is quite floral.

About 2" in...a bit of sweetness coming in on the draw, still wood and floral in the nostrils and a woodsy finish. Good burn.

About halfway...the sweetness and spice have mingled together to create what I call a "baking spice" flavor. Quite woodsy on the finish.

A little past halfway...the baking spice flavor has become dominant. Floral flavor and aroma are all but gone. A bit of a liquor flavor has come in on the finish.

Toward the end...liquor flavor has taken center stage, backed by spice. Unsweetened cocoa on the finish. Sweetness, wood, and floral are completely gone. Let 'er die at around 1.5".

Final thoughts...this cigar is a winner. I've smoked quite a few of these, and this is the only size I've tried, but I have some lanceros on the way.

Great review. This is one is the only new cigars I have tried in over a year and I love them. I'll have to try the maduro too.

Great cigar and review. I am a Torpedo or Toro fan and never tried smaller ring gauges for this cigar but many boxes of those I mentioned. I like pretty much anything from Casa Fernandez.

Crap, I responded already! Well this cigar is just double post worthy.
