Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2019 | Score: 88

A black, oily cigar that draws and burns evenly, producing a flaky ash. It's a mostly oaky, earthy smoke that hints at minerals and sweet vanilla.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2018 | Score: 86

A rough-looking cigar with a gnarly wrapper and glue spots. Its light vanilla notes become bready and herbal before turning earthy, though the finish is a bit saccharine.

Dark and rustic in appearance, though its salty, roasted nut flavors, coconut notes and slight sweetness make this cigar tastier than it looks.

A dark, veiny cigar that draws well, emanating a distinctly floral aroma as it burns. Flavors start out sweet and savory but turn a bit dry with a short finish.
