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, 2018 | Score: 86

Splotchy and dark, this cigar is rolled with an unevenly colored wrapper. It's yeasty and bready at first with hints of cloves, caramel and tangy citrus, but the smoke turns bitter on the finish.

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.
