A very toothy wrapper on this cigar. It has a smooth draw, with a tangy, woody and nutty flavor. The finish is toasty.

Made well, with an oily wrapper, this cigar is mild to medium bodied. It has a nutty flavor with some leathery qualities, but the finish is short.

An oily wrapper. It's solid, with a good burn and draw. It's light, floral and almost minty, with notes of ginger, cinnamon and coffee.

This solid smoke is a bit veiny. It burns beautifully, showing cedary, spicy flavors with a hint of cocoa. A warm, smooth cigar. Medium-bodied.

A well-made cigar with a dark and coarse wrapper. It has a strong, leathery quality yet remains sweet and mellow. Some tasters noted a tight draw.
