The freshly rolled Millenium Blend (with extra ligero in mine!) was quite an enjoyable cigar, if not completely mind-blowing. Nice aroma, deep bitter chocolate, and a very noticeable tobacco sweetness (which i really liked right at the end). The draw was slightly looser than i prefer, but it burned as slow as anything i’ve seen despite heavy puffing. An easy 2 hour cigar, accompanied with friendly conversation. An excellent evening!
