Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2018 | Score: 88

A rough, spotty cigar that burns and draws quite evenly. Muted tobacco notes in the beginning blossom a bit to show nuttiness, wood and fleeting intonations of chocolate.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2015 | Score: 88

There is a boozy, walnut liqueur quality to this smoke, as well as a backbone of spicy wood that leads to a peppery finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2010 | Score: 88

A fat, nutty cigar with a balancing sweetness. Flavors are medium-bodied and consistent without much development, though pleasant and tasty.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2005 | Score: 86

Somewhat homely in appearance, this cigar has chewy, woody flavors, and some spice. Pleasant and simple, with a mild to medium body.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2001 | Score: 84

This cigar is toothy and gray. The smoke is woody, with a papery quality and a hint of yeast. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2000 | Score: 83

This toothy, oily log of a cigar is very firm. It has an even burn, but a weak draw. It has notes of leaves and grass.
