Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2002 | Score: 88

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.

A good medium-bodied smoke. It has hints of sweetness, with cocoa notes and a touch of wood in the finish.

This cigar has a noticeable cedary finish. There is also a solid earthiness, with a hint of nutmeg on the palate.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 1998 | Score: 84

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.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1996 | Score: 86

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