Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2013 | Score: 89

A dark and veiny belicoso whose nutty, coffee-like flavor takes on touches of spice. The finish is herbal.

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

This misshapen belicoso starts out boldly, full of leather pepper, but underlying metallic flavors hurt the score.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2008 | Score: 90

This very well-made cigar has a supple texture and oily sheen. The draw is slightly firm, but even, delivering a spicy, chewy smoke with woody notes throughout.

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

This oily cigar is spicy, with tart wood and earthy notes. The finish is muddled, and earthy.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2003 | Score: 85

Oddly shaped, this chocolate brown, veiny cigar is hard to light. It's a high-octane smoke, loaded with leather and nut notes and a black coffee finish. Full bodied; age would temper the rough edges.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jul 01, 2002 | Score: 89

This well-constructed belicoso draws and burns like a dream. There are rich, complex flavors of ginger, spice, fruit and coffee, and the finish is oily. Rich and powerful.
