The Frank Llaneza 1961, the cigar that was released at our Cigar Dave event, has just arrived at the Tinderbox at Southpark (being sent to our other stores, but its at Southpark right now if you want one immediately).
For those of you that did not attend the event, or have not sampled this cigar yet, this is a pretty full bodied cigar. To me, this tasted like a very strong and spicy padron, with undertones of earth and cedar.
When first lit, the cigar has a little bite to it that quickly mellows out and becomes smooth but still mildly spicy and with good flavor. Towards the end of the smoke (I smoked this cigar down to a tiny little nub), the strength and spice became very apparent and at this point the cigar developed a sort of peppery taste.
I thought this was a great cigar and would suggest it to any that have not tried it, or that are looking for a good full bodied cigar. This is not as strong as a la flor double ligero, but it is still pretty full.
Its a great stick, and I would think that this cigar would age nicely.
