Mild and slightly sweet, showing tea and vanilla cookie notes that become a bit heavier with breadiness, and hint of marshmallow.

A pallid torpedo with an uneven burn. It is grassy and toasty with some savory notes. The finish is weedy and papery. Mild to medium bodied with some sharpness.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 10, 2006 | Score: 85

A toothy pyramid with a good burn. The smoke has a nutty character and vanilla notes as well. Some acidic flavor was also noted before a chewy finish.
