|Though dark and gritty with a rustic wrapper this cigar is sweet on the first puff, delivering notes that range from of rock candy and refined chocolate to anise and cherry-liquor.|

An “A” size that exudes a cocoa aroma as it burns. The smoke is sweet and toasty, with some herbal and woody notes that get richer with every puff.

An elegant cigar that’s a slow starter, but it warms up nicely to show rich and woody flavors with a hint of Cuban coffee. Rich and medium bodied, with a creamy, almond finish.

Dark and silky, with some rumples. The cigar burns and draws well. It has almond notes, and hints of sweet cedar wood. Mild to medium bodied.

A smooth, well-balanced medium bodied-smoke. It has strong, solid flavors of nuts and coffee beans. It is a very well-made cigar.
