Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2007 | Score: 88

A big blond torpedo with a silky wrapper. It burns very well, producing a creamy, woody smoke with some vanilla notes and a papery finish. A simple mild- to medium-bodied cigar.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 20, 2006 | Score: 88

A very shiny torpedo with an even draw and good burn. Wood, earth and subtle leather notes build up to a savory finish.

The well-chiseled head on this cigar tops a golden brown pyramid. The smoke is grassy, mild and a bit minty. It has a creamy note and a delicate floral finish.

A mild- to medium-bodied cigar with a lot of character. It is creamy, with a nice toasty quality, and there is a hint of sweet nuts, such as cashews.
