The head and cap of this dark robusto are crafted with many seams. Cocoa and roasted coffee bean notes lead to hints of wood and an orange-peel acidity.

This richly hued cigar is made with an attractive wrapper and smokes evenly. Primarily woody flavors are accom- panied by touches of semi-sweet chocolate.

A sweet and savory cigar that is woody and floral. It’s a thick smoke, but flavors and combustion are consistent and even.
