Neatly pressed with a dark wrapper, this little cigar shows a palate of hardwoods with a sweet-and-spicy character that leaves an ashy aftertaste.

Dark, oily and box pressed. Intensely cedary, the flavors take on some sweet floral notes.

A rough cap on this cigar, which has good oils. The draw is excellent. It has coffee and cocoa notes and a medium body.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 02, 2004 | Score: 87

This oily and box-pressed cigar has a fine draw and a rich aroma. It has flavors of damp wood and cedar. The finish is a bit bland.
