Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2005 | Score: 87

A dark cigar with an oily wrapper. It has an easy draw, and is loaded with sweet cedar notes and hints of anise. A medium-bodied cigar.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2004 | Score: 85

Very black, with some pronounced veins. The smoke is bready, with vanilla highlights, some gumminess and a very short finish. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 29, 2004 | Score: 84

This night-black toro comes packed in a cedar-lined tube. It's veiny and rough to the touch. The cigar has flat flavors with some sweetness. The finish is woody and papery.
