Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2014 | Score: 88

A dark Churchill whose initial tartness turns into a combination of licorice and coffee notes that lead to a flinty finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2012 | Score: 90

Dark and oily with a full draw but uneven burn. Its woody, herbal start becomes richer with smoked hickory and notes and black pepper flavor.
