Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Jun 01, 2010
Score: 85
A pigtailed lancero with a rich, dark and veiny wrapper. The draw is a bit firm, but imparts a primarily woody smoke leaving a dry, papery aftertaste to the palate.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Dec 01, 2008
Score: 89
A pigtailed lancero that burns evenly, though a bit hot in the beginning. It cools down to show a mellow balance of coffee bean and nutty flavors.
