|Dark and slim with a firm draw. Some toasty, licorice notes come through, but a dry chariness offsets the medium-bodied flavors.|

A dark and oily cigar that’s somewhat pressed. A savory, hearty smoke with touches of wood, caramel and chewy grass. The finish has a touch of licorice on the palate. A medium to full-bodied smoke.

A box-pressed cigar with an alluring wrapper. It draws well, loading the palate with sweet licorice, earthy spices and other notes. A medium to full-bodied cigar.

This dark, oily cigar has a perfect cap and a silky wrapper. It burns like a champ, showing rich, heady flavors.

This cigar showed some elements of youth. There were strong elements of cedar and spice. It is full-bodied, but there is a bite on the finish. Should improve with age.
