Tasting Note
Dark and imposing, this large cigar imparts the dark chocolate and licorice notes that a near-black wrapper suggests, however, it's balanced by a medium-bodied base of almonds and wood.

There's a rough texture to the wrapper of this pressed cigar. The smoke starts sweet and salty with hints of leather, but picks up considerable charry notes.

13 This cigar is a bit homely, with big veins and a sloppy cap. It has hints of anise and sour wood, and a steely finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1993 | Score: 85

This medium-bodied cigar has a slight sweetness on the palate and strong flavors of sweet nuts and spice.
