|Sweet notes of graham cracker and ginger snap provide a balance to the earthy, leathery undertones of this Lonsdale, which burns cool and slow.|

Although this lonsdale is rough in appearance, it's full of salty, leathery notes as well as cedar and cumin intonations and a cedary finish. Tastes better than it looks.

There are sharp creases left on the body of this cigar from its mold pressing. Spicy ginger and fresh tobacco notes segue into a faint mocha sweetness.

Veiny, dark and toothy but notably firm on the draw. Woody and leathery with an unusual, yet interesting sweetness in the form of coconut and corn-starch flavor.

A rustic cigar. It has a perfect draw but an uneven burn, with woody notes and a hint of bread dough. A tangy finish.

This is a strong cigar with some roasted coffee flavors. It has a very dry finish and tastes a bit young.

This wrapper is dark and a bit dry. The draw is easy, and the cigar leaves a dark gray ash as it burns, delivering rich smoke with a touch of leather.

This good-looking, well-made cigar is sweet and toasty. It is medium-bodied, packing flavors you would expect in a large cigar. Some inconsistency was noted in the draw.
