Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2018 | Score: 92

A long cigar with a very flat head. Initial puffs are light and herbal, but this cigar intensifies to show sweet, rich notes of chocolate and vanilla, maraschino cherry, and a toasty, nutty finish redolent of hazelnuts.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2009 | Score: 95

A box-pressed cigar with a very even burn and a lush draw that saturates the entire palate with complex layers of spice, nut and wood flavors before a toasty finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2008 | Score: 92

A pressed cigar with a dark, toothy wrapper. The draw is firm but still delivers copious amounts of leather, light spice and earth. Baked apple and tea notes add a sublime balance before the woody finish.

An alluringly pressed double corona with a dark, oily wrapper and good cap. The rich smoke is full of cocoa, coffee and toast flavors. Well balanced and elegant.
