Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2005 | Score: 86

This cigar has a creamy sheen, and a draw that’s somewhat tight. It has cream, vanilla and dry wood notes. Simple and mild.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1999 | Score: 85

A good balance to the flavors. It has a mild to medium bodied smoke, and there is an herbal quality with just a hint of spice. Some woodiness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 1998 | Score: 89

A well-made cigar with a spicy character. It has some nutty flavors, with a creamy smoothness. A mild light finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Sep 01, 1997 | Score: 90

This cigar has a great balance. It is filled with a rich, coffee bean flavor, and hints of nuts. It has an overall cedary character, but a slight dry woody finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1995 | Score: 83

A very light, mellow smoke with some creamy, mild spice flavors but a flat, neutral finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1992 | Score: 85

With a dark brown, rather coarse wrapper, this cigar burns very well and has an even draw. It is medium-bodied with spicy, roasted nut flavors and a medium, almost green, tobacco finish.
