Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2017 | Score: 91

Sweet and mild with a creamy smoke redolent of honey, ginger and freshly ground pepper. Its wrapper is yellowish in color and the cigar burns and draws evenly.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2014 | Score: 88

Covered in an oily wrapper, this mild to medium cigar smokes evenly, delivering notes of wood and cedar with some slight gumminess on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2011 | Score: 87

A few prominent veins riddle this golden brown cigar, whose uneven burn corrects itself. Its creamy smoke is intermittently woody and sweet.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2010 | Score: 85

This large log of a cigar has some toasty, sweet marshmallow notes, but slight bitterness and lingering papery flavors hurt the score.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2008 | Score: 86

A pale cigar with a toasty, semi-sweet set of flavors that include vanilla and woody. The finish is dry.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2007 | Score: 88

A large cigar with a lightly colored wrapper. It draws well for a big cigar and is mostly creamy with nutty and ginger notes. Nice flavor for a mild- to medium-bodied cigar.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2004 | Score: 87

Attractive and oily, with a nicely done cap. The cigar has dry wood and vanilla notes, with a creamy flavor. Mild to medium bodied, with a bright finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 2004 | Score: 87

This gargantuan Churchill is pale and attractive. It has a firm draw and mild flavors, including grassy, earthy notes.
