A light and toasty torpedo with plenty of almond notes, a touch of vanilla bean and a woody finish. Tasty and consistent.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2011 | Score: 87

A squat belicoso with a dull, thin wrapper. The cigar required several relights, though the draw is even, offering medium-bodied spice, cedar and orange peel flavor.

Issue: Cigar Insider: May 22, 2007 | Score: 89

A very well made belicoso with a silky smooth wrapper. It has cedar and leather notes, and a short finish.
