Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2016 | Score: 91

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.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2014 | Score: 89

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.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2009 | Score: 88

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.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Feb 01, 2000 | Score: 86

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

Issue: Cigar Insider: Mar 01, 1997 | Score: 86

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

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 01, 1996 | Score: 89

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.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1996 | Score: 89

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.
