Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2012 | Score: 85

A rough, grayish petit corona that offers an earthy, tangy smoke with a heavy mineral finish. Could use more balance.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2011 | Score: 87

A bit drab in appearance, this medium-bodied cigar is sweet and nutty with a minty aftertaste.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2007 | Score: 90

This petit corona burns well with a lush draw that envelops the palate with a rich, cedary smoke underscored by earth, nut and leather flavors. Medium to full bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2005 | Score: 88

A dark cigar with wood and caramel on the palate, with a touch of licorice. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2004 | Score: 88

This cigar has an alluring wrapper, and a near-perfect draw and burn. It’s loaded with earthy, toasty flavors wrapped around a cedary core.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Feb 01, 2004 | Score: 88

This toothy little cigar is dry to the touch. It’s strong and woody with a long, peppery finish.
