Slightly tapered at the head, this short robusto imparts a creamy, velvety smoke rich with coffee bean and dark chocolate notes that take on a sweet, marzipan character.

There's a strikingly rich, red color to this dark robusto, which has charry underpinnings accentuated by notes of earth and black pepper, however the finish is a bit raw and sharp.

The heavy earth and floral qualities of this short robusto are complemented by notes of orange peel and almond. The draw and burn remain even.

Smoking this short, stout cigar is like sipping a hazelnut and coffee liquer. It picks up notable earthiness accented by some spice. Complex and rich.

A medium-bodied smoke with a dead-even burn throughout. Tea and bread dough flavors precede cedar, toasted almond and fresh tobacco intonations.

An attractive short robusto with an even burn and substantial draw. Each puff delivers solid, steady tobacco notes and a wheaty, grain-like finish. Medium bodied and consistent.
