Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2012 | Score: 90

A fresh, rich interplay of heady tobacco and dried fruit defines this belicoso, which is covered in a reddish-brown, veiny wrapper.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2009 | Score: 91

A slender torpedo with a light wrapper and even draw. This is a gutsy smoke laden with black pepper, leather and a cocoa bean sweetness to complement its strength.
