Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2017 | Score: 90

All the earthy, nutty and woody notes of this large, girthy cigar lead to a notably floral finish that resonates on the palate. A medium-bodied smoke.

A big, dark log of a cigar with an exceptionally rounded head. It's tangy and woody with a bready note and a mineral finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 07, 2011 | Score: 87

Very thick with a slightly firm draw. Flavors are a bit muddled, especially on the second half of the cigar, and range from creamy and sweet to herbal and stemmy.
