Gran Consul... Indeed!
I dont know that I have ever held a better constructed cigar but thats just the start. The Gran Consul while still a powerful smoke is milder than the belicoso which, IMHO, allows the complexity to shine though. The tastes? Hold on to your hat! About 20% in I started getting lots of bacon, yes bacon. This lasts to the nub along with similar tastes of sweet hickory, BBQ and outdoor grilling. There is some leather and you get the pepper as well which one finds with all Antano 1970s. An uneven burn in the last third is all that stops me from giving this incredible experience a classic level rating of 95. 94...

Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Gran Consul is excellent after dinner.
It is a stealthily STRONG cigar with a smooth enjoyable taste. It is deceptively light, smooth tasting and short in size, with a good amount of smoke and flavor. But, watch out, it a very full cigar that will make even the most experienced smoker turn green, on an empty stomach. Eat dinner, grab a whisky, scotch, gin or bourbon and ENJOY.

A real masculine smoke.
Physical strength is the overwhelming word association I get with this stick. Exceptional construction and gorgeous colored band coupled with excellent feel in the hand.. all of which add to the experience we enjoy as cigar lovers. The taste is exceptionally complex even to the point of perhaps being unable to discern everything this smoke offers. This fact coupled with fairly consistent uneven burns (not to the point of being disconcerting) and a lack of volume in smoke produced are what prevents me from giving 5 stars. I would give this outstanding offering a 92.. up slightly from its 90. Synonyms for bellicose include belligerent, aggressive, pugnacious and contentious. Perhaps never has a cigar been more appropriately named.
