  1. Interesting. I really loved this cigar. Wouldn’t mind seeing you do a comparison with the 77 Anejo Shark.

    Otherwise, love all your reviews, thank you very much and keep up the good work.

    • I have the Anejo Shark so I might try it out soon, from what I remember from smoking it a couple of years back, it’s a much fuller bodied cigar. But it will be great to do a proper review on it.
