Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2016 | Score: 89

This tan panetela burns and draws perfectly. The initial notes of citrus zest are complemented by an almond nuttiness and touches of leather, though the finish is slightly metallic.

Issue: Cigar Insider: May 01, 1997 | Score: 85

A grainy, yellow wrapper. The draw is inconsistent. The cigar has a faint hint of cream along with papery, dry flavors.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Sep 01, 1994 | Score: 87

A smooth, brown wrapper. It has some cedar-wood flavors and a spicy backbone.
