Issue: Cigar Insider: Dec 02, 2014 | Score: 87

Packed with tobacco, this dark cigar has a bit of a firm draw, but still offers sweet dried fruit notes along with touches of leather. A metallic finish offset the score.

Semi flattened with a dark, oily wrapper. Notes of earth and coffee bean combine with leather, cedar and black cherry before an excessively tangy finish.
