Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 10, 2012 | Score: 91

Very dark in appearance with a matte wrapper and full draw. The torpedo smokes evenly, starting with coffee and pepper flavors before a sweet licorice aftertaste.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 20, 2007 | Score: 94

A toothy maduro that burns and smokes like a dream. It is rich and earthy, balanced by subtle but sophisticated spice notes and a long woody finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2006 | Score: 89

A dark, good-looking pyramid. It smokes well, with a lush draw. The cigar has a sweet wood flavor, with a touch of grassiness. Some bitter notes.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Apr 26, 2005 | Score: 90

This torpedo is well made, with a dark, oily wrapper. It has an even burn. It's nutty with notes of coffee, earth and licorice, and has a light spicy flavor on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jul 01, 2000 | Score: 84

This solid cigar is dark as night and is well made. It draws and burns well, with minty, sour notes and a dry, grassy middle.
