This is a new cigar from Altidas blended by Jose Seijas.  This is a limited edition release and only comes in a Robusto size. 

The presentation is gorgeous.  This cigar has a gorgeous moderately dark wrapper.  Perfect roll – seamless!! Very few vein lines.  It is firm to the touch with a beautifully constructed cap.  The label is perfect – simple black and white.  These cigars make you want to buy it just on appearance alone!!!

But now down to business and how it smokes! It had a perfect even burn and an excellent draw.  There was a nice burst of pepper upon lighting.  That mellowed out about an inch or so into the cigar.  At about this time I did pick up on an acidic taste.  Best way to describe it would be like tannins from wine.  And for the remainder of the smoke it was just a very mild mellow cigar.   

This cigar is very reasonably priced and with its near perfect construction has so much potential! What I would do with this cigar is age this for about 3 to 6 months to allow the flavors to marry and become more prominent.  Because to me this was just too mild!

As it stands at this moment this cigar would be good for the beginning smoker.  This is a good mild cigar for a reasonable price.
