Excellent construction. This cigar has a beautiful, silky wrapper. The cigar has hints of leather and light chocolate, with floral notes and a soft, powdery finish.

While this medium bodied cigar has a good core of cedar, with a hint of nuts, it also dries out on the palate and the finish.

Loaded with strong earthy flavors, and a dose of leather. But this cigar is very young, and is therefore, still imbalanced. May improve with substantial box age.

Dark, coarse and well made, this robusto is herbal, earthy and pungent. It has leather and chocolate notes, and a bit of bite. A medium- to full-bodied cigar that will blossom in a humidor.
