What did you think?  Curious to get your thoughts on this specific blend.

I was smoking to enjoy, not review, but... Prelight had a pepper in the back of my throat that surprised me. Once I lit it, I got more of that early, but it mellowed over time. Got some floral notes that we're the dominant flavor I was able to pick up throughout. Mixed with some creaminess and that hint of spice in the background. Is it the best cigar ever? No. Did I enjoy it? Definitely - thank you. How long have these been sitting? I wonder if they have even more potential over time.

Only been sitting a few weeks, this is a straight up fresh roll. The ligero is wet as well, so it def overpowers the blends.  As it mellows, the complexity should develop, while the presence of the ligero on the tongue stays.  It is a very non-cuban blend with Cuban tobacco.  Personally, I do not plan on revisiting this for about two years, maybe end of next summer just to see where it is.

Oh and I wasn't looking for a review, otherwise I would have asked ;)

Yeah, I can taste the ligero, but didn't think it was obscenely overpowering - thought it accentuated the flavors. But, yes, I envision this really hitting with some time on it.
