Wrapped in a pale cover leaf, this thin cigar draws well, delivering an oaky smoke with a bit of citrus flavor and an acidic finish.

Pale and wrinkled, this cigar has a very easy draw. Mild citrus notes transition to a faint nuttiness.

A light cigar with a somewhat firm draw. It has notes of wood and pencil lead, and a mild to medium body.
