Tasting Note: A nearly flawless wrapper covers this cigar, which smacks of nuts and honey once it warms up. Some woody notes also come through, leading to a graham cracker finish.

Score: 88
Each puff is a spice cabinet of flavors that include cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, though the cigar burns a bit hot, leaving a flinty aftertaste.

Score: 90
The lush draw of this little cigar fills the mouth with a peppery smoke. Leather notes also emerge building to a floral finish.
