The wrapper on the Nat Sherman 1930 has just the slightest oil sheen to it, with some medium veins and a bumpy texture. The ‘water-color’, light brown wrapper is rolled very cleanly and the packing feels nice. Not to mention that, visually, the band goes perfectly with my Art Deco ashtray.

First look of the Illusione *G* Gigantes shows good construction and even rolling. There is a slight oil sheen, on a somewhat veiny wrapper, with clean pressed seams. With a nice looking band, that is quite minimal compared to the size of the Gigantes. The aroma is a bit sweet, of leather, earth, cedar and tobacco. Luckily, this cigar is not as large as the name would have you believe.

The Viva Republica Jailbreak is a very unique cigar indeed. It is comprised of a lancero, which is aged and then wrapped inside of a 6x58 vitola that is then aged again. Thus, giving way to the name Jailbreak, as the lancero is trying to break out of the larger cigar it is wrapped in. Details below, but I am very interested to see where this goes.

The wrapper of this Cubanacan Soneros Habano Claro is a light brown, with minimal veins, clean seams and a fair amount of fine toothiness. The length of the cigar feels perfectly rolled and the overall construction looks great. That's honestly all I know to start this cigar, so I'm ready to get to the good part.
