Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 20, 2006 | Score: 85

A perfecto with an uneven burn and firm draw. The flavors are woody and papery with some sour notes throughout. A medium-bodied smoke.

This figurado has acid cedar notes and an herbal character. The finish is short, with a wisp of wood chip flavor. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 01, 2001 | Score: 89

A pretty blond wrapper. The cigar burns elegantly. The smoke is floral, with a creamy middle, and has hints of white pepper.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Aug 01, 1997 | Score: 87

This well-made perfecto is oily and golden. It's mild and light, with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg and a touch of sweet fruit and a slightly tangy finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1995 | Score: 88

A medium-bodied cigar with a creamy texture and a solid core of nutty flavors that lead into a light spiciness.
