There's a dullish hue to the wrapper of this Churchill, which begins with herbal and mineral notes that lead to a charry finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2007 | Score: 91

Well made with a good draw, this cigar has a solid core of distinctly nutty flavors that have an underlying creaminess. French peanut notes and a touch of caramel on the finish make this a very tasty medium-bodied smoke.

A toothy wrapper covers this cigar, which has a toasty aroma. The smoke is toasty and dry, with some woody flavors. Mild to medium bodied.

Slightly toothy, with a veiny wrapper. The cigar has a slightly tight draw. It has tart notes and hints of black cherries and nuts. Inconsistent.

A firm, oily and veiny cigar. It has notes of cream and green wood, and is very mild.

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

This is a well-made cigar with a solid medium body profile. It has an earthy core of flavors with a hint of spiciness, but it has a short finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jan 01, 1998 | Score: 89

This cigar is woody with an excellence balance. It has a smooth pepper and nut component on the palate, and there is a sweet, flinty note on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 01, 1997 | Score: 92

A rich, dark wrapper that gleams with oil. The smoke is easygoing, with sweet wood and caramel flavors and a toasty finish. An elegant, refined smoke.
