I had a fresh rolled cigar by a Cuban cigar roller from the Partagas cigar factory, using Partagas tobacco, that was just amazing. Smoked one, currently aging the rest of them. At the 1-year mark I'll try another one. Habanos sends out a roller on a tour through Asia usually once a year (last year we got lucky had 'em come through twice). Next one's supposed to come through Seoul next month. Just like any other cigar, a lot probably has to do with the particular roller and where the tobacco is from. I have a video I took at the last roller event but it was so dark and noisy that it came out looking terrible so I never put it on YouTube.
