Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2018 | Score: 89

The firm draw of this fairly dark, toothy cigar imparts notes of dry cocoa powder, a bit of red-pepper spice and a bold finish of leather and wood.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2015 | Score: 86

Light and woody in character with a slightly discolored wrapper. There's some faint nuttiness to this corona as well, but the finish is mild and papery.

A little cigar with great color and shape. It smokes well, leaving medium-bodied woody, fruit and pepper notes on the palate.

A toothy cigar with good color. It draws fine. It ahs a dry wood taste, and lacks depth.

A decent looking corona with a toothy wrapper. It draws and burns well. The smoke has hints of cream, nuts and cocoa, with a woody flavor. It has a short finish.

Dark brown, shiny and oily, this medium-bodied cigar has a fine blend of flavors, including nuts, leather and pepper. The finish is spicy.
