Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2010 | Score: 88

A dark cigar with a notably uneven burn. The smoke is meaty and savory before turning sweet with cocoa bean and then earthy on the finish. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Oct 07, 2008 | Score: 89

This cigar has a dark wrapper and a well-constructed round head. A solid core of tobacco flavors is accompanied by sweet cedar and a tea note on the finish.
