Review #44: Finally getting some tamed down flavors from these o4 production runs, at first review very very overpowering tobacco flavors, almost too strong to enjoy. What a few weeks in the humidor does, they age and improve much better at a lower humidity rate than 70%, tried 2 different humidy setting first boxes at 70%, the second batch at 65%, the second batch is comming around faster and richer than the 70% batch. Classic cuban quality, all the flavors are here, espresso, chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, black cherry, and honey. Finally beginning to release the secret HOYO flavors and aromas. I will bury the balance of the 10 cabinets deep into the bottom of my main humidor. will revisit in the summer time keeping the humidity at 65%, no higher - Submitted by bigyesta on January 28, 2005

Review #43: This cigar was soft and well rolled, clut and lit beautifully, in fact it was the easiest lighting havana I have ever smoked and it's a robusto! First inch or so is smooth and mild, but to be honest not much difference from a Hamlet in flavour. As it burns down more then the flavour starts to emerge. Creamy, vegetal and floral with a magnificent aroma. Slight taste of cocoa powder later on and it has a nice amount of spicyness to it. Some people say they think it gets worse later on but for me it gets better. It's not my cigar of choice because I like smoking full flavoured havanas. When I spend this much money on a fine handmade cigar I want rich, full and complex flavour. Having said that however I really enjoyed smoking this after an early and light lunch, and if you enjoy Hoyo or the milder havana this is one of the best you can get. Half a star off just because the first inch reminded me of a hamlet (though clearly more refined)...I only noticed because I was examining the flavour, if you're not you wouldn't notice because your brain is telling you you're holding a large havana in your hand. - Submitted by A.

Review #42: what a lovely smoke! found this last nite in a repectable shop in Hong Kong. medium oily wrapper in colorado colour, the touch was surprisingly soft and spongy, almost felt like putting my fingers on a roll of andrex (and the ring is just a piece of art! which is a bonus). easily lit and evenly burn thru'out, the draw must be one of the easiest among all the habanos i even had, which i like alot. it has a very sweet and complex aroma, a perfect mixture of vanilla, cedar, chocolate.... u know everything that u can associate with Xmas. i have high praise of it except that flavour-wise it lacks the complex nuance like monte or cohiba. but overall it is still one of the best habano one can find. see it, buy it mates! or else i will buy them all! - Submitted by alex wong Hong Kong on December 24, 2004

Review #41: Wow, what a great cigar. Spongy to the touch, mine were 2003's and they are smoking very well now. This cigar fills the pallet with creamy smoke with its elastic draw. One of the few cigars that tastes as good as it smells. Not overly powerful, so save it for the afternoon opposed to an after dinner cigar. This cigar was a beauty with its oily wrapper and smooth smooth flavors. Smoked this in Boston, at Cigar Masters on the front couch with a holiday view of Boylston. A really enjoyable cigar, do try. - Submitted by Max on December 23, 2004

Review #40: Just tried my first one from FRH AUG 03 production run, yes they do have the bands on them as #35 has indicated. The flavors are unreal, strong tobacco is the main flavor, with espresso and cocoa, mingled in between. Almost like a new double corona, 03 04 production runs, however these newer ones cannot compair to the cabinets that i have from 00 and 01, they have no bands on and are mellowed out very much. The flavor is identicle to a Double Corona from the same time period, I wonder if they are from double coronas that had bad ends at the foot and were cut down. My friend from cuba said that they do that a lot, they cubans dont waste any thing when it comes to their bread and butter income. - Submitted by YESTAGRANDE on December 16, 2004
