Tasting Note
There's a lot of earthy cocoa powder and caramel sweetness to this cigar, which imparts a densely textured smoke. The sweetness fades a bit for woodiness and a touch of char on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2012 | Score: 90

Rolled with plenty of tobacco, this dark cigar burns and draws evenly and consistently, showing a medium-bodied profile of toasted bread, hard woods and raw cocoa bean.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Oct 12, 2010 | Score: 92

A dark, solidly rolled cigar that draws and burns evenly. The smoke is rich and toasty, leaving leathery, nutty impressions on the palate, as well as a pear note.
