A rare holiday cigar put out by the Fuentes sure is a great treat.  This is the WOAM as most people call it and is a Work of Art as it is called.  A very toothy dark and sweet maduro wrapper give this cigar a wonderful appearence.   It is nice and firm in the hand with superb construction.

The flavors are of sweetness and pepper.  The draw is flawless with ample amounts of smoke.  As I got to the 2nd third I noticed quite a bit of pepper and some chocolate flavors… mmm, this was getting good. The last third was smooth with some creaminess and mellowed out for me.  These sticks are good but I would prefer the Anejo shark #77 or a hemingway signature maduro.

As I sat and relaxed with this great stick I thought about the wonderful Thanksgiving I had and the many things that I am grateful for.  My health and my family…  as I heard today on Cigar Pass that one of the great one’s passed away.  Infinity as he was known on CP, Brian to the rest of the world was a great BOTL and a great guy who will be missed.  I will light up a cigar in his honor this evening and wish everyone out there to keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Nice review, otherwise!
