Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2008 | Score: 89

Thin and box-pressed, this dark cigar burns well, imparting coffee bean, earth and woody flavors that hint of vanilla. The finish is oily.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2000 | Score: 89

A solid medium- to full-bodied smoke. A solid core of nutty and toasty flavors, with some hints of spice. Good performer.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Aug 01, 1999 | Score: 91

This silky cigar is rich and nutty, with hints of burnt caramel, semi-sweet chocolate and toast. Easy to smoke and quite refined.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 1999 | Score: 87

There is strong core of cocoa bean flavor in this cigar. Medium to full bodied. It is unusually muted for this brand, and there's even a hint of mustiness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 1998 | Score: 88

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Sep 01, 1996 | Score: 83

This cigar has a strong herbal character. There are some hints of cocoa and leather on the palate with a perfume-like aroma. Mild.
