Tasting Note
A dark robusto rolled with a toothy wrapper. This is a strong cigar, resounding with Mid-Eastern spices like marjoram and cumin before an oily note on the finish. Full bodied, but could use some balancing sweetness.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 27, 2009 | Score: 86

Dark and oily with some veins and a bumpy cap. The full draw shows strong espresso bean notes that settle into mineral flavors and a tart finish.
