An attractive lonsdale that imparts sweet and salty notes before warming up to show wood and spice. Hickory and earth come through on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2013 | Score: 91

Attractively made with three-seam cap and tawny wrapper. Salty and woody at first, it takes on a fresh tobacco and coffee character that builds to a spicy, eucalyptus finish.

The draw on this lonsdale is notably firm but workable, imparting delicious fresh-ground coffee flavors and caramel notes fortified by a prominent woody backbone.

The draw of this lonsdale does not produce a substantial amount of smoke. The flavors are earthy and steely with intermittent cedar notes and a waxy-tasting finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2008 | Score: 91

Rolled with a supple wrapper this cigar produces a toasty smoke balanced by notes of coffee bean, leather and wood. The finish is chewy. A complex medium- to full-bodied smoke.

Orangey brown and attractive. The cigar has an uneven burn, but a good draw. It’s salty and grassy, with some sweet coffee notes. Some inconsistency was noted.

Perfectly capped and oily, this cigar has a meaty note with cedar and leather. Finish is smooth and nutty, hinting graham cracker and licorice. A pleasant note.

A good-looking cigar that draws and burns well. It’s rich and spicy, with cedar and toast notes and a hint of coffee. Medium to full bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Feb 01, 2004 | Score: 88

This cigar has a beautiful hue, cap and texture. It’s woody and sweet with a short cedary finish. It lacks depth and could use aging.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2002 | Score: 84

Oily, with some veins. The draw is firm. The smoke has a heavy coffee flavor, with a salty character. Full bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2001 | Score: 84

This olive-colored cigar has a nice cap. The draw is firm, and the burn could be more even. It's woody and a bit dirty, with some rough edges.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2000 | Score: 85

A beautifully made cigar. But it is quite flat and dry on the palate. There are some hints of anise, but otherwise it is quite woody.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 01, 2000 | Score: 91

This wrapper has good color and shine, but the leaf is veiny. It draws and burns well. The silky, rich smoke has floral notes, with hints of leather and cream. A chalky, short finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 1999 | Score: 86

This cigar was not very well made. It has some coffee bean notes along with some nuts and woodiness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Sep 01, 1996 | Score: 90

This cigar has a white peppery taste and is loaded with coffee and cream flavors. It is well balanced with a medium to full body and a cedary finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Mar 01, 1996 | Score: 92

This well-made cigar draws and burns beautifully, filling the mouth with round and rich smoke. It is full-bodied but refined, delivering complex flavors of coffee, wood and leather.

It's a shame when you finish this cigar. You can't get enough of it. It is full-bodied and rich yet maintains superb harmony. A truly refined cigar.
