A golden panatela with a slight, oily gleam to the wrapper. Faint cedar notes and sweet earth precede a mineral finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2014 | Score: 90

Full of bright and zesty tobacco, this lonsdale offers plenty of earthiness and nutty notes as well. Medium-bodied and satisfying.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2012 | Score: 89

Rolled with a very round head, this slightly box-pressed lonsdale begins grassy and floral picking up intensity with woody notes and hints of brown sugar.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2008 | Score: 87

A thin cigar with an even draw and burn. It offers mostly woody notes whose flavors oscillate between sweet cedar and pencil lead. Medium bodied overall.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2006 | Score: 87

A firm cigar with a firm draw. It has notes of wood and sweet cream and a solid tobacco flavor. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Apr 12, 2005 | Score: 89

A good-looking cigar with lustrous brown color and a good cap. It's pleasant and rich with a buttery aroma. There is some pepper on the palate and light spices.
