Issue: Cigar Insider: Dec 02, 2014 | Score: 87

Packed with tobacco, this dark cigar has a bit of a firm draw, but still offers sweet dried fruit notes along with touches of leather. A metallic finish offset the score.

Semi flattened with a dark, oily wrapper. Notes of earth and coffee bean combine with leather, cedar and black cherry before an excessively tangy finish.

An oily robusto whose dark wrapper hints at the cigar's bold earth, roasted espresso bean and stout-like flavors. Sweet, dried fruit notes linger on the palate.
