Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Feb 01, 2014
Score: 89
A savory, leathery-tasting smoke with touches of honey and a slightly charry finish. It draws and burns evenly throughout.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Jun 01, 2012
Score: 89
Though dark and gnarly with a sloppy cap, the draw and burn are dead even. Slight nougat and berry notes are joined by minerals and earthiness. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Jun 01, 2010
Score: 88
A big, dark cigar with substantial oils to the wrapper but a roughly applied cap. Coffee notes and sweet wood flavors become slightly wheaty and floral on the finish.
