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 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.
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.
I can say the cigar has aged quite well. I enjoyed the overall profile, especially with the spice transitions keeping me engaged the entire, long 3 hours. I think the cigar has a lot more legs left, and aging for another few years won't hurt, and hopefully will improve it.
Honestly, the cigar was a disappointment to me. When you modify a blend by changing the wrapper you can have a lot of success. At the same time, you can have a wrapper that does not go well with the blend. I believe it would have been more productive if they had created a whole new blend to be used with the wrapper.
