Reviewed by William Fitzgerald (July 2003) I'm relatively new to the world of cigars in that I have only been smoking them for about 3 years. Previously, I had been a pipe smoker, and felt I needed a change. A co-worker turned me on to the world of cigars in May of 2000, and I've never looked back. He and his wife both smoke cigars, and it wasn't long before they gave me my first Cuban as a gift for some work I'd done for them earlier that same year. Since then I have been smoking Cuban cigars on a regular basis, as money will allow. Six months ago another friend gave me one of a bunch of Cuaba Salomones he had purchased from CgarsLtd. He seemed very excited about his purchase, and insisted that I try one and tell him what I thought. Please find below my impressions on this figurado: Size: This cigar measures an impressive 7 1/4 x 49, and is shaped in the figurado style. Appearance: The wrapper is smooth and silky with the slightest impression of small veins. The color was a nice medium brown much like nicely tanned leather. Feel: The cigar was firm to the touch, but not hard. The appearance impression was right on in that the cigar felt as smooth as it looked. The Cut: The cut straight, and firm. Prelight Draw: Very nice with a wonderful sweet earthy/leafy taste before the light. The Light: The foot blackened well prior to the first draw, and the earthy taste previously noted now became a burning earthy aroma that was extremely enticing. The First Draw: The initial draw was once again very earthy, with a wonderful hearty tobacco flavor. The size of the cigar lent itself to a large volume of smoke that was very thick. The First : I noticed as the cigar burned an oily film seemed to appear, and then was adsorbed in to the wrapper. (I'd like to hear comments on this if anyone else has had the same experience with other cigars.) The earthy taste was very full with the emergence of a chocolate character (semi-sweet), and the beginnings of a nutty after taste. The Middle: The middle of the cigar is marked by the emergence of the nuttiness previously addressed, and the development of a very creamy spicy taste similar to vanilla. The Finish: The finish was very creamy, and sweet with the wonderful earthiness still present. Conclusion: This cigar was very rich, hearty, and long. It had large amounts of everything from taste to finish. Its flavor was bold, and very complex. I found myself staring at this vitole as it burned thinking how much better it would get with a years worth of age. A truly magnificent smoke! This review touched on all the points a good review should. If there was any lack, it was in depth. A wonderful review, but a little more would have been better. Rated 8 of 10 Rated by Frodo This is another prosaic, but complete and straight-forward review. It covers all the required points. Score: 7/10 Reviewed by Van55 Good review, maybe less rigid in its description.. Instead of bolding all of the different dimensions, work them into the prose. Rating 9/10 Reviewed by James R aka John Shaft OVERALL SCORE: 24/30

What can I say? An absolutely first rate cigar. Excellent construction with lovely oily wrappers. Excellent burn with an easy draw. Lots of character, with strong spicy notes coming through. Good long finish. Quality has been extremely consistent throughout the whole box, and I'll certainly be buying these cigars again. written by Nick
