This is an update to my previous review dated 05/11/16 where I stated that the first half of this cigar was a little too spicy for my taste. I'd bought 3 of these and smoked the first one almost immediately. The others I left in my humidor for another 2 months before trying again. It was worth the wait. They tasted just as Cgars describe them on this page. Certainly give the Montecristo Media Coronas a run for their money especially considering the price. I've uprated them to 5 STARS. I now must try the Entretiempos.

Wish I'd left this in the humidor a little longer. Heard a lot of good things about this little cigar and keen to try it. Great start cut beautifully and lit perfectly square. After the first quarter though I started to have some issues. A lot of heat in the middle and a uneven burn causing a couple of re lights!! It had a great flavour and definite complexity with some rich woody spice coming through. Will love to buy a couple more and leave them to mature a little.

This small cigar measuring 4” length and 46 ring gauge is, in my opinion a fantastic short full bodied cigar. Absolutely perfect for those short breaks during a cold winter.
In the first part you can find lots of strong leathery notes. The smooth and creamy full bodied taste has hints of spicy black pepper.
The second part is much milder in comparison to first. More creamy with lots of woody notes and hints of sweet, but full flavoured white pepper.
In the third part the strength comes back with fiery black pepper and hints of distinctive ginger. Creamy and spicy, a lovely combination.
This cigar is getting very popular in these cold days. A fresh ginger tea or a slightly peated Stalla Dhu Islay whisky is perfect to enhance the spicy flavours. Or, you could pair it with a lovely sweet Stalla Dhu Speyside for a more balanced experience.

I found the first half of this cigar a little too spicy for my taste however a few more weeks in the humidor may alter this. The second half was much more enjoyable. Construction, draw and burn were first rate. All in all a good alternative to the Montecristo and H. Uppmann half coronas.
