|Slender and pressed with a soft head. Initial saltiness sharpens and becomes earthy, especially on the finish, though there's a hint of caramel sweetness.|

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

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

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

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.

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