Tasting Note: A dark robusto with a rustic wrapper and round head. It starts earthy and woody before warming to show lots of leather, coffee and molasses character. A tasty smoke once it settles in.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Oct 01, 2015
Score: 85
A bit spongy and soft, this dark cigar offers initial notes of earth, leather and coffee bean, but poor burn and constant relights affected the taste.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Jun 07, 2011
Score: 88
The wrapper of this robusto is dark and a bit on the rustic side in appearance. The smoke is meaty without being overpowering and delivers some chocolate notes and a chewy finish.
