There's a strikingly rich, red color to this dark robusto, which has charry underpinnings accentuated by notes of earth and black pepper, however the finish is a bit raw and sharp.

The heavy earth and floral qualities of this short robusto are complemented by notes of orange peel and almond. The draw and burn remain even.

Smoking this short, stout cigar is like sipping a hazelnut and coffee liquer. It picks up notable earthiness accented by some spice. Complex and rich.

An attractive short robusto with an even burn and substantial draw. Each puff delivers solid, steady tobacco notes and a wheaty, grain-like finish. Medium bodied and consistent.

From the deep reddish-brown color to the perfect three-seam cap, this cigar exhibits model construction. A lush, full draw envelopes the palate with rich cocoa bean, sweet earth and pleasant floral notes that crescendo to a long, nutty finish.
