Impeccable in appearance and gleaming with oil, this corona is very solid to the touch. It's intense with earthy leather and saffron notes but mellows to show oaky vanilla and just a hint of black pepper.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2018 | Score: 89

A thin corona with an open, even draw. Toasty and nutty, the smoke also leaves a mineral sensation and a rich, chocolate cake finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2015 | Score: 90

This cigar has the sweet and bready cinnamon qualities of a graham cracker, along with a bold earthy core and cedary finish. The cigar gleams with oil and burns evenly.
