Put simply, this is the greatest cigar I have had the pleasure of sampling. The Especial has a truly prefect construction with layer upon layer of complex spice, leather and wood. These flavours are all woven together producing a high quality and creamy smoke. With only two left from the box, I am really struggling to find a suitable occasion to warrant setting fire to them! There is a tobacconist I know with a pristine box of these but he will not let them go for anything less than £700. I have therefore purchased a box of the 2007 EL Regalos in the hope that they might get close to being a patch on this beautiful stick.
