More Reviews of this Cigar
Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2017 | Score: 91

A toasty, oaky smoke that resonates with sweet vanilla-bean notes and a touch of toffee on the finish. It's a dark, oily cigar with even combustion.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2015 | Score: 89

An earthy, coffee-like cigar with occasional notes of baking spices and toast. The finish is a bit musty.
