Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2019 | Score: 87

Tasters encountered inconsistencies on the draw and burn of this yellowish lonsdale. Initial puffs are woody and herbal with hints of maple and brown sugar overwhelmed by a very grassy finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2018 | Score: 88

This blond lonsdale has a great draw and burn that offers lots of creamy smoke with touches of balsa wood and nutmeg. A very light, easygoing cigar.

Herbal and floral, this yellow lonsdale also imparts some grassy notes with consistent nuttiness. The mild, creamy textured smoke finesses the palate.

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

Wrapped in a gleaming leaf of Connecticut shade, this Lonsdale offers lots of creamy smoke on the draw. Woody flavors and touches of hazelnut and grass combine for a toasty finish. Mild to medium bodied.
