    Pretty smooth wrapper on this maduro.

    Apparently, the Recordando a Santiago is a reblend of the classic 1878 line.

    The first flavors are rather strong, not a cigar that beats around the bush.

    So far this has been a great cigar. Strong flavors, lots of variation and impeccable construction. Even the ash is smooth as silk, revealing beautiful tooth that is hardly discernible on the wrapper.
