Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2014 | Score: 90

A dark robusto with a rustic wrapper and round head. It starts earthy and woody before warming to show lots of leather, coffee and molasses character. A tasty smoke once it settles in.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 07, 2011 | Score: 88

The wrapper of this robusto is dark and a bit on the rustic side in appearance. The smoke is meaty without being overpowering and delivers some chocolate notes and a chewy finish.
