Rich milk chocolate color on this cigar, which has a sweet wood flavor. It’s toasty, with some coffee bean notes. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2001 | Score: 84

This silky cigar has an easy draw. It's cedary and tangy, with some rough notes. A medium-bodied smoke.

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.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1998 | Score: 86

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.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Oct 01, 1997 | Score: 90

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.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Mar 01, 1997 | Score: 86

This is a medium-bodied cigar with some toasted nut flavors. It is a bit flat and lacks depth.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1994 | Score: 85

A cigar with a clean finish, mild spiciness and some exotic floral flavors on the palate. Scored 90 in Vol. 1, No.1.
