Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2018 | Score: 87

Though the draw of this lonsdale is a bit firm, it delivers plenty of toasty, woody impressions with hints of anise and herbs. The finish shows lots of minerals.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2017 | Score: 91

Deceptively complex for a cigar with such a tan wrapper, this medium-bodied cigar imparts a rich, nutty smoke overlaid with spicy cinnamon, crushed walnuts and a creamy café au lait finish.

This thin cigar draws and burns evenly, offering a creamy smoke with woody notes. The finish is papery.

A golden lonsdale with a round cap and full draw. The smoke is light and toasty with touches of honey and some spice on the palate.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2007 | Score: 87

A good looking, light cigar. It has woody flavors, with some pine on the palate, and a light, sweet spicy character. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Oct 01, 2003 | Score: 88

A golden lonsdale with a very good draw. This cigar has flavors of anise and wood. The finish is short and steady. Medium in body.
