|A good looking cigar with a perfect burn and very good draw. It starts off strong with intense woody flavors, but fades and grows bitter.|

Pressed, with a toothy, brown wrapper. It has a good draw and a sweet aroma. The cigar is cedary and nutty, with hints of black coffee.

A flat, dark and attractive cigar. It draws well, with earthy, oaky flavors and a rich and sweet finish.

Some cocoa bean notes bring this cigar up from a rather dry character. There are some wood and leather flavors on a medium-bodied smoke.

This extremely box-pressed smoke has a nice cap. It has a smooth draw, showing earthy, toasted flavors with a burnt toffee character and heavy notes of wood.
