**Update, I am going to have to knock this one back down to a 9 of 10. Love the cigar, but I have been noticing more pepper than I am used to. My first stick was too magical to be completely fair! I got a bunch more and have been noticing that full body and pepper. It is still GREAT but I personally prefer a little less pepper. Still a 9 though, cant beat that!

Cigar Review: Graycliff 1666
WOW thats all I have to say...this is probably one of the best cigars I have ever had. When I picked it up and smelled it, I knew right away this was no normal cigar. It was not that usual horse barn, earthy smell that most cigars have (yummy right?!). It is true, most cigars smell very earthy and well not that good, unless you love cigars! This one smelled sweeter, but not like Acids sweet, it was just sweeter. It was noticeably less pungent than the other cigars that I got it with, and that made it seem even better. It had a great draw an average burn but man......the taste was amazing! It was a medium to full taste with its nice oily Jaltepec maduro wrapper. It started off a little spicy like nutmeg or cinnamon! It had a small nuance of chocolate but a great sort of hazelnut taste. All in all it was amazing, it was like a spicy little brownie, but a cigar! I am definitely getting more and I am going to try some other Graycliffs so keep checking back. I give it a 9.5 out of 10!
