Streaky and rustic in appearance, this leathery, earthy cigar also has some bitter qualities. There’s a slight dryness on the finish.

Dark and box pressed, with an oily wrapper. The burn on this cigar is slightly uneven. The flavor is charry and cedary, with a hint of licorice, and it seems a bit muted. Medium bodied.

A dark and oily wrapper. The cigar burns well, with earthy flavors and hints of black coffee. Some inconsistency.
