Curivari Achilles Legendario Heroicos - Cigar Review Redux

Seeing as this is a redux review, I recommend first reading my Curivari Achilles Legendario Heroicos - Cigar Review post. Up to you. Although a little bit of freedom is a very dangerous thing. Or maybe that's just me. Lettuce have another gander this Curivari Achilles...

  • Draws smooth and even.
  • Cap and shoulder stay well-affixed.
  • Nice smoke out-put, all-'round.
  • Excellent sweet-spice room-note.
  • Finish is quite good. Long, sweet/sour spices.
  • Balance is a selling-point here.
  • Smooth texture with a perfect bissell tingle.
  • Smoke is cool temp'd, gate-to-wire.
  • Complex to a surprising degree.
  • Some softening in spots.
  • Loses box press fairly quickly.
  • Burn operates on a curve.
  • Ash ain't a grower.
  • Pacing is rather fast.
  • Notes are a bit grassy in 1/3.
Sweet & sour spices up-top over salted bitters, sans bite. Dusty-warm peppers. Rich and cleanly-so -- not heavy. Flavors are a medium+ as is the syrupy body. Strength kindly trails at a barely medium.
