Uniquely shaped, this intriguing cigar has a slightly fat foot and a rounded head. The smoke is toasty, woody and syrupy. A flavorful, medium-bodied cigar.

A well-made cigar that draws fine, with a silky smoke. It's light, mild and floral, with very delicate spice notes and a hint of dried cherries.

A mild- to medium-bodied cigar. It has a light touch of cedar, with a hint of leather and pepper. Slightly dry.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Apr 01, 2000 | Score: 89

A cute shape: flared at the foot, thinner at the head. It draws easily, and burns with a very flaky ash. It has notes of wood and cocoa, with a faint metallic edge on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 1999 | Score: 83

A cigar with a strong woody character. There is hint of vegetalness, and a papery, or dry wood finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Dec 01, 1996 | Score: 87

This gently tapered figurado burns perfectly. It has a sweet cocoa flavor, complemented by just a touch of pepper. Medium-bodied and fairly rich.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Aug 01, 1996 | Score: 88

A rich, dark and veiny wrapper covers this figurado. The tapered tip is roughly formed, but the cigar has a smooth, easy draw and an excellent burn. The smoke is rich and delicious with a cocoa flavor.
