This thin cigar has a tight draw and uneven burn. It’s sharp on the palate, with grassy and gassy notes.

A pale, veiny cigar. It's has woody flavors with some cream notes, and the finish is rough.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 1999 | Score: 85

This rough-looking cigar has a perfect draw. It's medium-bodied, and the toasty, cedary flavors also have hints of grass. It tastes a bit young.
