Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2010 | Score: 87

Dark and chunky with an even draw and blistery burn. It's a cedary, medium-bodied smoke that becomes a bit dry on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2005 | Score: 85

Decent construction on this cigar, which is dominated by a dry flavor. Some coffee bean flavors were also noted.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 2004 | Score: 88

Dark, veiny and coarse, this rectangular toro has notes of nutmeg and spices, with almond on the finish.
