Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2008 | Score: 88

A lightly-colored cigar that forms a long ash as it burns. Sweet wood and pecan flavors surface as do some damp notes.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2006 | Score: 85

This oily, well-made cigar has a good draw and burn. It’s a woody smoke, but not well balanced, and it has a slightly sour taste on the finish. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 01, 2002 | Score: 86

This pale cigar features monodimensional earthy flavors with a hint of floral notes. It is mild bodied and has a short finish.
