|Evenly box-pressed and cool burning with a great draw. Woody, toasty and light citrus notes come through, although the cigar could use a touch of sweetness.|

This Churchill gives off a big aroma of baking spices as it burns. Its woody core becomes more interesting and detailed with licorice notes, chocolate and hints of cinnamon.

Squarely pressed with a round head and dark, oily wrapper. A bracingly strong start, smacking of coffee and earth, makes way for medium-bodied cedar and herbal intonations.

Sweet and toasty with notably coconut flavor and a touch of coffee bean. This cigar is oily and pressed with a slightly firm draw.

Dark, oily and squarely box-pressed, this solidly made cigar starts off bitter but turns sweet and cedary with a nougat-like finish.

This pressed maduro is somewhat tight. It has a charred wood note, with some vegetal elements, and a touch of anise on the finish. Medium bodied.

This pressed Churchill is oily and solidly constructed. It has an easy draw and burn. Woody flavors have a hint of metallic bitterness. Medium in body.
