Score: 93
A semi box-pressed beauty that smokes and smells wonderful, delivering the profound leather notes that cigar-smokers crave, along with coffee and spice flavors. A resounding chocolatey sweetness makes this cigar sublimely balanced.

This cigar has an oily wrapper and perfect cap. The rich smoke is layered with coffee, leather and cocoa. Cherry on the finish makes it hard to put down.

Score: 92
Attractive, with a fine draw and burn, th is cigar starts off slow and warms up into a leathery cocoa bomb. It’s nutty and balanced, with a smattering of spices. Full bodied.

A pressed toro with some discolorations. This cigar produces a fine aroma to accompany its good draw. It has flavors of wood and meat with earthy notes on the finish. Medium bodied.

Score: 87
A gorgeous colorado wrapper covers this cigar, which burns poorly. The draw is fine. The smoke is sour at first, then becomes leathery, with a touch of cedar flavor. Age would vastly improve the smoke.

Score: 90
This cigar is earthy, with soft flavors of light wood and herbs. Toasty and sweet, with a pleasant finish.
