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

Resistance on the draw of this corona results in a cool-burning smoke full of butterscotch, bittersweet chocolate and a salty finish.

A toasty, woody smoke with touches of nutmeg and cinnamon. Sweet notes of sugar-coated almonds emerge, as do hints of peppercorn. A tasty cigar.

This cigar burns and smokes well. A sharp, woody char- acter becomes more complex with floral notes, but overall the smoke could use more complexity.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 27, 2009 | Score: 88

This attractive cigar has a notably firm draw, but still offers sweet, cedary flavors with some leather and cocoa notes. The finish is sweet.

A slim cigar with a light colored wrapper. It draws well, offering lots of minerals and toasty wood flavor. The finish is spicy but short. Medium bodied.

An oily golden wrapper and fine three-seam cap make this a beautiful corona to behold. There are substantial, yet balanced notes of rich leather, coffee bean and almonds. The complex finish resonates with spices, mocha and cocoa.

A rough, veiny wrapper covers this cigar. It has a pleasant aroma and a variety of flavors, including toasted almonds. Some inconsistency was noted in the draw and the burn.
