Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2007 | Score: 87

This cigar has a smooth texture and good oils. It opens on a woody note that has traces of earth, nuts and cardboard. The mild- to medium-bodied flavors remain consistent but do not intensify.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2003 | Score: 87

It has a creamy sheen, and this milk-chocolate-colored cigar has a fine burn and draw. The smoke has some perfumed and vanilla notes, along with a tangy, chewy finish. Mild to medium in body.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 01, 2003 | Score: 89

Pale in color, silky in texture, this robusto has hints of sweetness, such as caramel and chocolate. The finish is slightly short, but it still has notes of earth and sweet spice.
