|Pressed and dark, this cigar looks like a chocolate bar. Though it begins herbal and earthy, it takes on more sophisticated notes of raw cocoa bean, toast and dried cherry.|

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2012 | Score: 91
Chunky and box-pressed with a wrapper the color of dark chocolate. The draw is heavy with coffee bean flavors that take on toasty notes, nuts and a touch of dried citrus.

A long, dark and pressed cigar that resembles a candy bar. The burn is a bit uneven, but the draw is substantial, full of dark-roasted espresso bean, earth and minerals.

Pressed with a dark wrapper, this cigar burns evenly with a lush draw that leaves distinct coffee-like impressions on the palate as well as a caramel note and a sweet cedary finish. Balanced and medium bodied.

This dark and square-pressed maduro has a meaty aroma. It has sweet, earthy flavors with a touch of citrus on the finish. Medium bodied.
