Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2016 | Score: 87

The smoke of this tan Churchill is creamy in texture, delivering bready, wheaty intonations with touches of cinnamon that build to a straw-and-hay finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2015 | Score: 88

A blondish Churchill with even combustion and a great draw. It's a woody smoke overall with hints of vanilla and a bit of char on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2008 | Score: 85

Big and blond with a few veins on the wrapper. A notably papery cigar with some woodiness that gets marginally richer as the smoke progresses.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2005 | Score: 86

A light tan cigar that has a slightly tight draw. It’s cedary and slightly minty, with a mild body.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Oct 01, 2003 | Score: 89

This coffee-colored Churchill has an even draw and burn, with a dominant woody flavor and hints of nuts and leather. The finish is wheaty and mellow.
