Draped in a tan wrapper, this Churchill is grassy and floral to start, but warms to become a creamy smoke with citrus and vanilla bean.

A blonde, rustic cigar. It has a nice draw, but an uneven burn. It's grassy, sour and tangy, with a weedy note. Tastes young.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jan 01, 1998 | Score: 84

This cigar has a nice long spicy finish. But there is a strong dryness on the palate, and a dry wood character.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Dec 01, 1996 | Score: 86

Superbly crafted, this firm, smooth cigar has a good draw and burn, and a powdery gray ash. It has a core of solid tobacco flavor, along with an acidic bite and a light, leafy finish.
