Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2015 | Score: 88

A tawny colored panetela with an easy draw. The creamy, woody smoke carries hints of salt and cinnamon. There is a damp note on the finish.

A grainy, yellow wrapper. The draw is inconsistent. The cigar has a faint hint of cream along with papery, dry flavors.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Sep 01, 1994 | Score: 87

A smooth, brown wrapper. It has some cedar-wood flavors and a spicy backbone.
