A big, black maduro with a fairly even burn. It's a spicy cigar with lots of leather, licorice and a tarry note on the finish.

Black and splotchy, this cigar has a firm draw. Initial grassy flavors settle in to semisweet chocolate, cinnamon and a heavily roasted coffee character.

A very evenly-colored maduro with a slightly uneven burn. Notes of spice, pepper and wood become increasingly stronger as this large cigar is smoked.

A veiny, dark cigar that imparts sweet licorice flavors accompanied by spice, earth and coffee notes. The finish is wheaty.

Toothy, dark and oily, with a rich aroma. It warms up to have damp earth notes complemented by light spice and caramel.

This oily and toothy cigar draws beautifully. It burns evenly, with light earthy flavors and woody notes on the finish.
