Old band QDO. About 4 years of age on it.. And man, this cigar keeps getting better. Creamy the entire way through. I also got some pretty heavy mocha notes about half way through that I didn't pick up on when it was younger. When it was younger it had some pretty interesting sweet spices, that I can now only pick up on through the retrohale. But I'll take the desert flavors that I'm getting. 
There were some notes of leather throughout, but predominantly a sweet cream. Will definitely let these rest for even longer. It also had some of the most impressive smoke production of any cigar I've had. Burn was wavy, but didn't require any attention (it had just rained, so I'm gonna attribute it to that)
Also this was definitely the ugliest rapper of the box. None of the rest are as mottled as this one. But 

Probably the ugliest wrapper I’ve ever seen in one of those lol but it seems to have smoked great ! Happy for ya

lol it really was an eyesore. Had to smoke it just so I wouldn't have to see it in the box.

This was the fifth cigar I've had from this box and it continued a great run of flavoursome sticks. Caramel, coffee, honey and a little toast this time (perhaps the youthfulness, no doubt?). Towards the last third there was more of a wood flavour which dominated and distinguished this from the other four I had in the past month to month-and-a-half. No matter, I still nubbed it!

You sure have been having an enjoyable run on these it seems John. They are certainly nubable IMHO also. I'm loving my box from 17 also.
