Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2007 | Score: 88

Well made with a healthy-looking wrapper, this cigar has an excellent draw and burn. Flavors range from sweet and nutty to leafy and dry. A good medium-bodied cigar that could use more complexity

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 2004 | Score: 87

This cigar has a silky pale wrapper and a nice cap. It has steady flavors of wood and nuts, but could use more depth. The finish is short.
