Crafted with a very round head, this yellowish Churchill holds a firm ash as it burns. It's a bready, grassy smoke with floral notes and straw-and-hay intonations that segue into a bitter almond finish.

Pale with a rounded, crooked cap. The cigar has a fine draw ,and is toasty and floral with a touch of roughness and a dry finish. Mild.

A pale and veiny Churchill with a firm draw. The flavors are sweet and sour, then develop into creaminess. The finish is short. Mild to medium bodied.
