This box is from SCO and is dated SEp. 02. The cigars are awsome to look at. Dark and oily, very few viens. The construction is top notch, definately the product of an experienced torcedor. Ok on to the review... this cigar tastes great from start to finish. Perfect draw and burn. It is very smoothe and complex and tastes more mature than 2 years. It starts off a bit slow like all double coronas, then really turns on about an inch and a half in to it. There are flavors of coffee and leather, and it has a long rich finish. I've had these in the past and wasn't that impressed, but it is now my current favorite D.C. To me it has more kick than a Punch or Hoyo D.C. Just recieved another box same factory, but only 8 months age. Same quality, tastes almost as good without the extra age.
