Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2016 | Score: 88

A notably veiny Churchill with a slightly uneven burn but substantial draw. It's a woody, wheaty smoke with a citrus note and mineral component. Faint walnut notes appear on the finish.

There are a lot of green spots on the wrapper of this spotty cigar. Its medium-bodied notes of cedar and pencil lead leave a boozy, vermouth-like aftertaste.

A warm, woody smoke that is both floral and fruity. Medium bodied and pleasant with an even, consistent draw and burn.

A drab, olive-colored wrapper covers this cigar, which draws and burns very well. The smoke tastes like creamy coffee before turning oily on the finish.

A cream-colored wrapper covers this cigar. It has a firm draw but burns well, showing a blend of woody, toasty and nutty flavors and a tart finish.

Toothy and attractive, this cigar is a good performer, with a fine draw and burn. It’s toasty, mild and simple.
