This popular full bodied cigar is box pressed and firmly constructed. Prominent coffee tones with some sweetness invade the pallet as a noticeable spicy pepperiness begins at first light and builds throughout the entire smoking event. A dirty grey ash tends to flake a bit as it burns evenly and slowly.

I have mixed feelings about this cigar. Although reasonably priced, I cannot see why the hysteria surrounds this brand. I thought that the flavor leaves nothing to the imagination and is one dimensional, while the construction is acceptable; but not exceptional. Perhaps the problem is that I have smoked too many of the Anniversario!
