A slim cigar with a pointy tip, the smoke is profoundly spicy with black and cayenne pepper around an earthy, leather core. It's strong and tasty with complexity.

A slim, dark cigar with a very oily wrapper. It has a beautiful draw and burn. The smoke is full bodied and spicy, with salty, earthy notes and notes of cedar sweetness.

A slim panetela with a pointed tip. The draw is excellent. The cigar is a bit harsh at first, but it develops complex notes of cedar, leather, steel and nuts. Medium to full bodied.

Great color on an interesting shape—a parejo with a belicoso tip. It has thick, heavy smoke with strong notes of leather and minerals.

A beautiful cigar with earthy flavors, and hints of toasted vanilla and cream. It has a fine draw. Some inconsistency.
