Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2014 | Score: 89

A simple smoke that is woody and nutty with a mellow finish. It's a pleasant and medium-bodied cigar.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2013 | Score: 91

Profound leather notes immediately saturate the palate, followed by some chewy coffee bean flavors and a hickory finish. Draw and burn are even throughout.
