|Rustic notes of rawhide and earth carry some elegance with a nougat and caramel sweetness. A medium- to full-bodied smoke.|

Poorly pressed, this slim cigar has a rough cap. The draw is nearly loose. After a rough start it develops toasty, leathery notes and a hint of earthy spices. Medium to full bodied, with some rough notes on the finish.

This cigar has a vegetal character with a medium bodied smoke. It seems a bit dry on the palate and the finish, but a solid wood note brings it up.

A rich-tasting cigar some dark, sweet flavors like chocolate. But a very firm draw was noted.
