Tasting Note: Balanced and complex from the first puff with a distinct core of coffee bean flavor that is finessed by notes of caramel, nuts and earth. Flavors become more refined as the cigar progresses.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Oct 01, 2016
A primarily floral cigar with hints of wood, cinnamon and a vanilla bean finish. It's constructed with a neat, three-seam cap and flat head.

Softly pressed with rounded edges and a flat head. An overly earthy start eventually leaqves nutty, floral impressions that are slightly sweet with graham cracker, however an underlying earthiness remains.

There is firmness to the draw of this large cigar, but a lot of complexity, as coconut and almond notes are balanced by dried orange peel and earthy flavors with each puff.
Issue: Cigar Insider, Apr 27, 2010
An exemplary double corona with the perfect amount of resistance on the draw. There is a flavorful and balanced interplay of rich, sweet, nutty flavors, tea notes and cocoa.

Pretty and plush exterior with an essentially woody flavor core once it's lit. Leather and coffee bean impressions emerge on the palate as well before a long, spicy, chewy finish. Rich and balanced.

This large cigar is nearly perfect in appearance .It has a smooth flavor with a creamy, spicy quality. There are hints of coffee and cocoa. Medium to full bodied.
Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Feb 01, 2005
This cigar has a firm draw. It’s toasty, earthy and wheaty, with some sweetness, but it lacks depth. Medium bodied.
Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Mar 01, 1995
This cigar has a smooth, creamy texture with strong pepper and spice notes and a sweet, intense, nutty character on the finish.
Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Dec 01, 1992
This is a full-bodied cigar with decadent aromas and flavors. Superb.
