If you are a big ring gauge fan and loved the line, I would highly recommend it. I smoke smaller ring gauge cigars, but if I am in the mood for a big cigar I would grab one of these. Lots of flavors, complex and balanced.
The flavor is primarily centered around wood and carried some baking spice, black pepper and cream as accompanying notes. I'd recommend a larger vitola if you want to try the line, but this still provides an enjoyable experience.
The cigar started with a very smooth profile and as it went along, lost the cream which left a primarily oak and baking spice note. Smooth is a great descriptor for this cigar. Maybe the best Archetype I've had thus far.
The mystery of a coffin...not knowing what you'll find inside...the hype of the Liberty line. Let's face it, I was truly looking forward to smoking this one. The 2005 I enjoyed a couple of years ago was pretty darn good.
The performance was perfect, but flavor is the name of the game and this cigar just doesn't have it. It's a bit disappointing as this series was supposed to be something special and it just doesn't deliver.
If you were a fan of the old Cruzado releases, you will find this to be completely different and lacking that quality which you loved in the original Cruzado line. It just lacked that awesome sweet spice from the Criollo tobacco in the original blend.
The transition of the cedar becoming sharper and spicier as the cigar progressed was both unique and tasty. This, surrounded by a cast of nuttiness and black pepper made for an overall good tasting cigar.
