Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2017 | Score: 91

A toasty, floral smoke that develops a nutty richness and a sweet, candied-ginger finish. There is slight resistance to the draw.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2017 | Score: 90

An oaky, cedary cigar with a touch of saltiness and fresh tobacco underpinnings. The cedar notes gain intensity, and resound on the finish
