Tasting Note
There's a notably firm draw to this medium-bodied robusto. First puffs have the briny quality of green olives. The smoke carries notes of black pepper and oak, though the finish is a bit musty.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2008 | Score: 85

This pale brown cigar produces a solid white ash as it burns. The woody, earth flavors turn papery and dry. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 10, 2006 | Score: 87

This cigar draws evenly, giving off a nutty aroma. It imparts steady caramel, cinnamon and ginger flavors. The finish is nutty with some wood notes.
