Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2013 | Score: 90

Handsomely box pressed with a dark, oily Colorado wrapper. Initial acidity dissipates to show a balanced combination of rich woods, walnut flavors and a warm, toasty finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2011 | Score: 88

This thick, dark cigar starts out toasty and coffee-like with a raisin sweetness, but the flavors lose some of their intensity.

Slightly pressed with a dark, velvety wrapper. The smoke smells and tastes heavily woody with some spice notes and leather flavor.

Roughly made, this dark cigar has some inconsistency in its draw and burn. It’s a peppery smoke, with notes of licorice and wood.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2003 | Score: 89

Dark and attractive, this cigar is intensely cedary, with earthy, licorice flavors. A medium to full bodied cigar.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jul 01, 2002 | Score: 90

A solidly built maduro with good shine to the wrapper. The cigar burns well, producing an attractive white ash. Rich leathery flavors are present, with notes of citrus fruit and a sweet, spicy finish.
