Attractive color, with a slightly rough cap. It has a good draw. The taste is toasty and woody, with a hint of coffee bean. A medium-bodied smoke.

A light but oily cigar with a good bunch and a sloppy cap. The cigar has an easy draw and a decent burn. The smoke is herbal, sweet and grassy, with a dry finish. A good morning cigar.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Sep 01, 1995 | Score: 84

A nice-looking mild cigar with a touch of spice and dried fruit, but has a flinty finish, and the bite of young tobacco.
