Long and squarely pressed, this Churchill has a slightly firm draw, but shows a core earthiness with hints of anise and cocoa and an oily finish.

Slim and squarely pressed, this long Churchill is earthy with heavy mineral notes. The finish is quite bitter.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2011 | Score: 91

A semi-pressed cigar with a dark wrapper and lush draw. There's a sweet and smoky balance of toast and nuts complemented by sugared Cuban coffee and dried fruit.

Good texture to this wrapper. The cigar is woody, with licorice notes. A medium-bodied smoke.
