Bdawg says: **WARNING!** If you are a rookie do not attempt to smoke this cigar. Put it down and walk away. Ask someone for a Macanudo. You must be a professional to smoke this strong cigar. I consider myself to be an experienced cigar smoker and I must admit, this one kicked my ash.  If you are going to attempt to smoke this one, TAKE YOUR TIME and you will enjoy it.

This cigar made by Camacho was ranked the #24 Cigar of the 2011 by Cigar Aficionado.  It has a beautiful reddish brown corojo wrapper. It has a nice firm, but slightly pliable feel. The draw is nice producing a medium-tight grey ash. The flavor is definitely full, strong but not harsh, leathery, earthy, with a slightly tangy, sweet and sour finish. The burn is slow and even.
