extraordinary cigar, very much like the cien anos, though this one has a little extra perfumy and floral quality to it, and is a little sweeter, which is a matter of taste if it is an improvement over cien anos; certainly this is a more "celebratory" smoke but still has that dominican (and especially la aurora) sweet, steaming milk taste. these guys are challenging the fuentes as best cigar make in the DR.
