Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2013 | Score: 89

This dark, oily wrapper has a reddish hue. Though the draw is notably firm, the cigar still teems with flavor that ranges from sweet poached pears and cinnamon to black pepper and earth.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2010 | Score: 90

Dark and alluring, this little cigar is a flavorful interplay of coffee bean notes and earth flavors that get richer as the cigar smokes.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2008 | Score: 90

Dark and alluring with a fine draw and burn. The first impressions on the palate are cedary and peppery before the smoke takes on a pleasantly chewy, toasty character. A medium to full-bodied smoke.
