A few prominent veins riddle this golden brown cigar, whose uneven burn corrects itself. Its creamy smoke is intermittently woody and sweet.

This large log of a cigar has some toasty, sweet marshmallow notes, but slight bitterness and lingering papery flavors hurt the score.

A large cigar with a lightly colored wrapper. It draws well for a big cigar and is mostly creamy with nutty and ginger notes. Nice flavor for a mild- to medium-bodied cigar.
