Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2018 | Score: 89

The dark, toothy wrapper of this thin cigar is bumpy to the touch. Its dense smoke delivers impressions of sweet woods and dried fruit along with a bit of pepper. The finish is pleasantly herbal.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2005 | Score: 81

A rough looking cigar with a rumpled wrapper. It burns poorly. The smoke is charry, woody and lacks depth.

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

This dark, toothy cigar burns slightly ragged and the draw is tight. The smoke is very peppery, with notes of tropical fruit marred by hints of grass.

This well-made lonsdale has a smooth, oily wrapper. It has a smooth, creamy flavor, with hints of vanilla and cinnamon, along with hints of citrus fruit. A sweet aroma.
