Big and fat with pigtail cap, this cigar is full of rich, oaky, leather flavors. Sweet notes come through in the form of caramel and cocoa before an earthy, floral finish.

This golden-brown cigar has an uneven burn. It has bready, woody and cedar flavors, with some acrid notes. Significant performance inconsistency was noted.

This toro has a nicely twisted pigtail cap. It has a firm draw. Flavors are balanced and strong, smacking of cedar. The finish is leathery and nutty.
