    This is my favorite cigar yet I never did a review. Time to set the record straight.

    The band is rather simple but the blue color is very distinctive. The wrapper, a Jalapa shade, is very smooth anf silky.

    The first flavors are woody and grassy, with a creamy sweetness in the background. Love at first draw...

    About half-way through the cigar gets a bit nuttier and somewhat earthy. All rather subtle, though.
