Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2016 | Score: 82

Near-black in appearance with a very pointy tip. While there are earthy flavors, there is also a heavy charriness and a damp, mushroom-like finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2015 | Score: 90

A dark and strikingly oily torpedo that delivers a bready, cedary and earthy smoke with wheaty and sweet intonations and a spicy, red-pepper finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: May 11, 2010 | Score: 90

A dark and oily torpedo. While the burn is a bit blistery, the flavor is substantial, with spicy notes of red and black pepper and a bold, lightly fruity red wine finish.
