|A very dark robusto with a firm draw. It’s a medium-bodied woody smoke that carries a vanilla sweetness.|

A near-black short cigar that tastes as charry as it looks. Some woody flavors comes through, but the burnt aftertaste does not subside.

This rumpled maduro burns evenly, with a gray ash. It has wheaty, nutty and cocoa flavors, with a touch of licorice on the finish. Mild- to medium-bodied.

A rough-looking maduro with a good draw. The smoke is tart and cedary, and gets muddled near the finish. Medium bodied.

This maduro has a silky wrapper. The flavor is very woody, and a bit dry. Medium bodied.

The wrapper on this cigar is very dark. It has an excellent draw. The smoke has notes of coffee and cocoa with a nutty aftertaste. The finish is a bit dry.
