This oily robusto has an open, full draw. Its initial floral character becomes woody and bready before taking on a vanilla bean and molasses character.

The initial saltiness of this robusto settles down to show coffee, earth and oaky white wine intonations. The draw is lush and substantial.

Though the draw is a bit firm, each puff layers the palate with cocoa, leather, raisin and molasses intonations, all buttressed by earth, coffee and spice.

This cigar is a bit pale with a loose wrapper, but is cedary and floral in character. Medium-bodied overall, but the flavors could use more complexity.

Score: 92
A golden brown robusto with a flat cap. The fine draw finesses the palate with a peppery smoke well balanced by leather, tea and cedar notes. A medium- to full-bodied cigar that will improve with age.
