Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2015 | Score: 87

There's a damp, musty undertone to this oaky cigar, which also has notes of vanilla. Rich, earthy notes of carob chips come through on the finish as well as a hint of spearmint.

A rustic cigar with a rough cap. It has an inconsistent draw. It's a bitter cigar, with stale, biting flavors and a faint hint of ammonia.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 1999 | Score: 88

A great looking cigar. It has a strong core of toast and nut flavors that are well-balanced on a medium body. However, it has a rather short, dry finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jan 01, 1998 | Score: 78

This cigar is very mild, and very dry. It is flat on the palate, with a dry, herbalness on the palate.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Sep 01, 1995 | Score: 86

A medium-bodied cigar that has mild flavors of nuts and leather, backed up by a bit of spiciness.
