|The smoke from this veiny and rustic looking cigar layers the palate with impressions of bread, charcoal and bitter woods. Off notes and a very dry finish affected the score.|

Good tooth to this wrapper, which burns unevenly. It’s woody and spicy, with a touch of cedar but little on the finish. Medium bodied.

This rustic cigar has a nice draw and an even burn. It has light, earthy flavors with light notes of spice.

This brawny cigar appears to be box-crushed, rather than box-pressed. But it burns beautifully, filling the mouth with rich, earthy smoke. Nutty and leathery, with a cedar finish.
