|A hearty, toasty smoke with plenty of hickory and cocoa bean flavor. Some sweet wood notes also emerge on this box-pressed cigar, which draws easily.|

Thick and box-pressed, this dark cigar draws beautifully, layering the palate with complex notes of cedar, nut and toasty flavors that lead to a profound cocoa character.

Box pressed with a chocolate brown wrapper. It draws and burns perfectly, starting out sweet with cocoa and toffee flavor, and then balancing out with coffee and leather notes

Dark and box-pressed, this wide robusto is full in body. It’s woody with notes of anise and spice. It’s nicely balanced, gaining in strength as it smokes.
