Gnarly veins cover the rustic wrapper of this Churchill, which is mostly earthy and coffee-like in character.

Score: 88
Dark and attractive with a well-crafted cap. There are pervasive licorice, anise notes that underscore coffee, earthy flavors and a pepper finish. A slow starting medium- to full-bodied cigar.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Dec 01, 2006
Score: 88
A solidly rolled, dark cigar with good oils and a firm draw. The chewy smoke is rich, with leather and wood flavors. Light spice notes underscore a creamy finish.
