A great one by perdomo. Medium to full bodied. The habano line is excellent. Great construction easy draw and nice flavors. If your into something a little stronger pick these up. They have them in three different wrappers.
Good stick with some construction issues

Pre-light: Smoked with ~4.5 months of humidor time and a V-cut. A small crack appeared after cutting and went down to the band. Presents with a very pretty chocolate wrapper with an earthy scent, and a spicy, earthy aroma from the foot. The pre-draw was quite spicy with underlying earth and sawdust flavors. Paired with a Sierra Nevada "Narwhal" imperial stout. First third: The first third is filled with wonderfully complex, dark-but-not-too-dark flavors. I would say the core flavors were mostly hardwood smoke, spicy molasses (the stuff with a real bite, like Blackstrap), and a medium earth. Some ancillary flavors of leather and cocoa came and went depending on the draw. Not really any pepper to speak of; any heat came from that molasses flavor. The pairing with the Narwhal is just outstanding, and I think this would be just as good with any other imperial stout. The burn is just shy of razor-sharp and the ash is gorgeous. Second third: The spicy molasses receded a bit in this third, and some of the toasted oak and hardwood smoke stepped up. These were joined by a core flavor of smooth, moist tobacco. Not much in the way of complexity in this third, but it remained very tasty with the Narwhal beer. That crack around the cap started to grow on me, but didn't cause any real problems at this point. Very enjoyable. Final third: Dude, where's my wrapper? The wrapper literally peeled away in the final third after I removed the band, allowing the crack to propagate down the remaining length of the cigar. I've seen flawed wrappers before, but this was a first for me. The wrapper leaf was quite thin and brittle. It's a bit of a moot point, though, since the flavor had changed by this point to an almost-charcoal flavor, so it wasn't all that enjoyable. Once I ran out of beer I chucked the last 1.5 inches or so. Verdict: Very enjoyable first third, pretty good second third, and useless final third. Great pairing with an imperial stout. This loses pretty significant points for construction issues. I'd call it "good-to-very good," 85/100 (I'll round up to 4 of 5 stars).
