Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2017 | Score: 88

A dark, gleaming Churchill that starts strong with earthy, woody and nutty notes but loses intensity. There's a faint hint of brown sugar on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2014 | Score: 88

A dark Churchill whose initial tartness turns into a combination of licorice and coffee notes that lead to a flinty finish.
