Co-Founder at Half Ashed
A cigar enthusiast since 1994, I strayed into deeper involvement with the tobacco industry just before founding The Cigarmy blog in 2011.  This preoccupation grew once more when I co-founded Half Ashed with Craig Schneider in February 2013.  With the consolidation of The Cigarmy and Half Ashed in late 2014, you can now read my cigar reviews, news and editorial commentary here - and catch me live on every episode of the Half Ashed Cigar Podcast.

  1. The few problems that you did have with this cigar are due to it being fresh. All Anejo’s smoke best at 2-3 years of age, that also explains the spice over the normal Anejo smooth chocolaty 1/3 flavors. Anyways great review and I know for sure you are the first to review this cigar. Thanks.

    • Yep. The name was publicized after I’d written this review. They’re already on the shelf, BTW. I guess they called it pre-release because their examples came from CFC as well. I’m surprised they came up with an “86.” For my tastes, this is pretty close to the top of my favorite Añejo vitolas. I don’t know how they come up with the numbers they assign, though. From their notes, it appears the construction was very near perfect, and their only real beef was with the subjective flavor factor. No accounting for tastes, I suppose.

      • The only reason they gave it the score they did (86) is because the Anejo line needs age, just like a Cuban. They can be very harsh, strong and brash in their youth. I am not a huge fan of Dominican tobacco but I do love Anejo/Opus with years of rest.
