A symmetrically rolled torpedo that imparts a medium-bodied smoke. It's meaty and peppery throughout with touches of chocolate and an earthy finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2005 | Score: 90

A good-looking cigar that performs well. It’s earthy and spicy, with a cedar base and a tangy finish. Medium- to full-bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Feb 22, 2005 | Score: 89

This attractive, dark brown figurado has an easy draw and a heavy aroma. It's strong and balanced with notes of leather and spice. The finish is creamy.
