VSG Tres Mystique

Recently, I have been smoking more and more habanos. Actually, exclusively habanos for the last two weeks. It just seemed that every domestic I tried sucked bad. Last night, I was headed in to work for somebody from 11p-7a. I had about a 40 minute drive, so I fired up a VSG Tres Mystique, a domestic I bought from Raybo. I had looked at it several times this week, pissed at myself for buying a $7 domestic when I could have bought a $7 cuban. From the first puff, a big silly smile stretched across my face. This thing had a wonderful flavor. And it wasn't good because it "tasted like a cuban". It didn't taste like a cuban at all. It had it's own unique flavor that was such a toasted pine nut, rich cocoa combination I thought I was cruising through a forest of chocolate Christmas trees. It was heavenly and the amazing thing is it stayed that way down to the nub, never getting hot or flat. I've had a couple domestics that were good for the first few puffs, but none recently that stayed so smooth throughout. This was a blissful cigar that will keep me hanging on to a select few domestics, for now anyway.
ISO Opus DCs, RdC, Perf X, #2, and Super Beli. PM if you can help! TIA.
