Topped with a messy cap, this black double corona shows a palate of sharp woods, charcoal and an herbal finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2015 | Score: 85

Near black in appearance with a matte wrapper. This cigar produces a white ash as well as walnut notes, maple and a dry, chalky finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2012 | Score: 87

Big and black with a silky wrapper. Some charry coffee notes in the beginning settle down to slight citrus and anise flavors.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2011 | Score: 88

Big and dark with a slightly firm, though workable draw. It offers a medium-bodied mix of coffee bean, wood and hints of leather.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2009 | Score: 86

Big, dark and rustic in appearance. The cigar burns very unevenly delivering lots of dark-roasted coffee flavors, woody notes and a charry, over-roasted finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2003 | Score: 86

Dark cigar with an oddly colored cap. The draw and burn are decent. It has notes of wheat and sweet spices. Pleasant, and medium in body.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2002 | Score: 85

A big, veiny maduro that burns a bit crooked. It's sweet and toasty, with heavy vanilla notes and a sweet finish. Medium to full bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2002 | Score: 86

A veiny, rough maduro that burns crookedly. The smoke is oily and cedary, with some sour notes and a hint of vanilla. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1999 | Score: 84

Although this cigar is well balanced, it has a slightly tarry note, and some papery hints on the finish. A core of woody flavors on the palate and finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 1999 | Score: 87

This huge, well-made cigar is smooth and cedary, with hints of ginger and semisweet spices on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 01, 1997 | Score: 83

This big cigar is surprisingly mild. The flavors are muted, with hints of coffee and sweetness, but it remains flat.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1995 | Score: 86

This maduro-style cigar has a mild, smooth character with a backbone of sweet spices and pepper.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1993 | Score: 84

A big cigar with a medium body and loads of spice on the palate, but it finishes dry and sharp.
