Tasting Note
Richly hued with a strikingly oily wrapper, this cigar burns unevenly but corrects itself. It's an earthy, leathery smoke with a touch of coffee on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2018 | Score: 90

This toothy Churchill burns evenly, its draw, full and open. Sweet nougat and earth notes meld pleasantly with woody intonations and hints of vanilla. The finish is oaky.
