Overall Impression: 
After  Hearing many outstanding reviews of this cigar and the La Palina line in General I was a bit skeptical as to how good they actually were. After smoking this stick it is easy to see that this cigar really does live up to the hype.The flavors are deep complex and all around have great balance. A great stick from a great company I think I will purchase  in a box of these and let them age and see what happens.
