Tart minerals underscore touches of chocolate and earth, but the finish of this cigar is laden with mineral notes.

The smoke of this tan Churchill is creamy in texture, delivering bready, wheaty intonations with touches of cinnamon that build to a straw-and-hay finish.

Big and blond with a few veins on the wrapper. A notably papery cigar with some woodiness that gets marginally richer as the smoke progresses.

A light tan cigar that has a slightly tight draw. It’s cedary and slightly minty, with a mild body.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Oct 01, 2003 | Score: 89

This coffee-colored Churchill has an even draw and burn, with a dominant woody flavor and hints of nuts and leather. The finish is wheaty and mellow.
