Nutty and rich with sophisticated earthy undertones that range from coffee bean to raw cocoa. A tangy, cedary finish makes this medium-bodied Churchill quite complex.

An alluring Churchill wrapped in a deep reddish brown leaf. Some cedar and spice notes come through this mostly toasty, medium-bodied cigar.

Enveloped in an oily, reddish-brown wrapper, this cigar is a slow starter, but warms to show medium-bodied cedar, coffee bean and cream flavors before the woody finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider, May 22, 2007
Score: 89
A good-looking cigar with a silky, lush wrapper. It is a woody smoke, carrying notes of apple, tea and tobacco before a slightly dry finish.

An attractive cigar with a well-done cap. The draw is firm. It’s a woody smoke that builds in intensity, becoming cedary and more flavorful with each puff.

Score: 85
This golden Churchill has hints of cedar and leather, but it suffers from a lack of complexity. It’s medium to full in body.

An attractive and tawny cigar that has a slightly tight draw. It’s woody, wheaty and toasty, with a faint hint of chocolate and a medium body.

Toothy, golden and solid, this cigar produces a rich, aromatic smoke, in spite of draw and burn problems. It has flavors of leather and earth with a touch of caramel. Medium to full in body.

Despite some veins, this cigar is well constructed. The draw and burn are excellent, and the smoke shows hints of wood with notes of citrus. Medium bodied.

Score: 91
A tawny cigar that's pressed and silky, with a nice sheen. The draw is a bit firm. The smoke is meaty, rich and nutty, with hints of macadamia nuts. Rich and alluring.

A rustic but oily cigar with an uneven burn. It's rich and cedary, with a sweet flavor and a hint of licorice. Medium to full bodied.

Score: 90
A firm cigar with a colorado wrapper and a perfect cap. The draw is firm, but it burns well. It's a bit herbal, with spice and pepper notes and hints of cocoa bean.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Feb 01, 1999
Score: 86
A medium bodied cigar with very tight draw. There is a dominant woodiness, with some hints of dark earthy tastes like leather and cocoa bean. A poor result for a benchmark Cuban Churchill.

A good-looking cigar. It has hints of cedar but it's fairly bitter and tastes young. Lacks depth.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Jul 01, 1998
Score: 89
This is a very cedary cigar, with hints of black pepper and herbs. A medium-bodied, well-balanced smoke. Some inconsistency.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Jan 01, 1998
Score: 89
A young cigar. But a solid core of medium-bodied flavors that include sweet spices and roasted nuts, and a strong sweet wood finish.

Score: 85
This gorgeous, dark cigar has prominent veins, but it's impeccably rolled. The smoke is heavy, with earthy, barnyard flavors and hints of cocoa, but there's an unmistakable smack of youth.

A beautiful, golden brown cigar that's as solid as a brick. It is medium-bodied, with a salty quality. Tasty and well made.
