wow.
This is one amazing cigar and one of the best I have ever had the privledge of smoking. I took one out of my book and the aroma is magnificent!

It started out with a stunning aroma and finish of cocoa and sweet butter.
The entire experience was consistent throughout and the flavors so complex and full bodied and only became more pronounced as I got further to the end.

To me the flavors were easily identifiable - Cocoa, Honey, Caramel, cinnamon, Sweet butter and a touch of leather.

The quality was just an incredible example of what the finest cuban tobacco is supposed to be like. This was one of my best purchases in recent years and well worth the premium price. I can't imagine what these will be like in a few more years.

The burn was a tad uneven but it was so silky smooth delicious I didn't care one bit. This is easily a 96 score in my book.

Nice! I remember a couple years back I asked "What's a SCDLH O'Reilly"?...nobody answered me...LOL

Sounds like a delicious smoke!

I would doubt they would be in the same league even.

Yes, and I have had most of that Marca and they can be quite flavorful. But as Shlomo says... not even in the same zip code.

Found a site that sells 2 for $129. Ouch. $65 a piece is too much money to burn. Anybody wants to trade for one?


To smoke or not to smoke, that's the question.

honestly i think they're worth it. i enjoyed the O'Reilly just as much as the CGR.. but O'Reillys cost only half the CGRs' price... and they can only get better with time & care

spot on review AWOA!

Just got my book last month. You're right-on-the-nose. They do smell magnificent!! So much so, that the thought occured to get another. LOL so far, still just a thought. Haven't burned one yet though, but reading this heightens the anticipation bigtime.
Thanks for your review!!

I'll be honest, reading your review and seeing the comments after is the reason I bought the book.

You are going to cherish these babies my friend. They are unbelieveable. If the flavor was a bit "thicker" I would have bumped it to a 97-98 Enjoy!

They better be THAT good for close to $50/stick. Then again, same range as the Cohiba 1966 Red Face . I wish I could roll like that.

They really are. I bought two books.. split one of them with another BOTL. Give credit to Steve Cohen for finding this gem.

I've still got one left from when you split them up. One of these days I'll have enough time to sit down and relax with one of these.
