Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2009 | Score: 86

Very firmly packed with a dark wrapper. The draw is firm at first but opens up to show woody, peppery notes, overripe fruit flavors and a tart finish.

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.
