I've only been into cigars for 10 months when a cigar store opened not one block from me. I've had an opportunity to try 40-some cigars. I've had good & bad cigars from cheap to mid-priced. This one is at the upper end of my price preference and is worth it. I would rank it among the best cigars I've had to date. I liked it so much I bought a box. I don't know what "93" means compared to 90 or 92 or 94. This is just a great and a little different, cedar-y smoke. Its in my 4-star selection.
