Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Apr 01, 2008
Score: 88
A deeply hued, golden brown cigar with an inordinately firm draw. Some of its richness still gets through, showing toast, coffee bean and tea on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Jun 19, 2007
Score: 90
A beautiful “A” size with a rich complexion. An even draw loads the palate with coffee, wood and tobacco notes that have an underlying sweetness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Aug 01, 2006
Score: 94
Nearly perfect in appearance, this “A” has a slightly firm draw and an even burn. The smoke is rich and smooth, with nutmeg, vanilla and wood notes. An elegant, balanced and rich cigar with a medium to full body.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Dec 01, 2004
Score: 85
This “A” has some inconsistency in appearance, as well as draw problems. It has mild, toasty flavors, with some dry wood notes.

A lovely three-seam cap tops this "A." It's earthy and woody, with maize and marzapan notes and a hint of toffee. Medium bodied.

This "A" has a well-made cap. The smoke has a toasted almond flavor, with hints of orange peel and wood. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Oct 01, 2001
Score: 82
Impressively built, with a well-made cap. The cigar has a very tight draw and it burns crookedly. The smoke is sour, raw and grassy, and simply disappointing.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Aug 01, 2001
Score: 85
A creased cigar with a sandy colored wrapper. The smoke is mild, grassy and wheaty. It lacks depth.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Nov 01, 1998
Score: 88
A veiny, pale wrapper. The cigar burns slowly, with earthy, woody flavors. It's smooth, with hints of pepper, but it lacks depth. A medium-bodied cigar.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Mar 01, 1997
Score: 86
A cigar with very light, mild characteristics. It has a cedary note on the palate with some papery flavors.
