Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2011 | Score: 88

A large, corpulent cigar rolled in a toothy wrapper. The burn and draw are uneven, and flavors range from wood and spice to oil.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2008 | Score: 89

Big, thick and dark with a slightly lopsided cap. It draws well for such a large cigar showing spice, wood and a toasty finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2006 | Score: 89

A fat and veiny cigar with a dark wrapper and a fine cap. It’s a woody, meaty cigar with a leathery richness. Rich and balanced, with a medium to full body.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2005 | Score: 86

Very fat, with good color and sheen. The smoke is spicy and oily, with some cardboard notes. Medium- to full-bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2003 | Score: 88

Big and veiny, this thick cigar burns very well with a slightly loose draw. It's a bit sweet and toasty, with notes of coffee bean and a slight tang on the finish. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2002 | Score: 86

This attractive cigar burns with a woody, dry flavor. It has a touch of black pepper on the finish. A medium bodied smoke. Some inconsistency was noted.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 2002 | Score: 88

A huge cigar that's as solid as a baseball bat. It draws surprisingly well. The smoke is cool and earthy, with a nutty, burnt caramel flavor. Medium bodied.
