As bold as it appears, this dark, box-pressed belicoso delivers a strong, salt-and-pepper quality with hints of cocoa and coffee, that turn a bit acidic.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2015 | Score: 88

A box-pressed belicoso full of ground coffee and mineral notes. A spicy, pickled ginger note emerges as well, though there is some bitterness on the finish.
