Silky, with lovely texture. It has a fine burn and draw. The smoke is creamy and a bit floral, with notes of vanilla and a mild, bready finish.

Extremely silky but pale. The cigar burns well, but the draw is uneven. It's wheaty and sweet, with hints of dry wood. Mild in body.

Issue: Cigar Insider: May 01, 2001 | Score: 87

This cigar is very pale, but it's firm and well made. It draws well for such a dense robusto, with grassy, acrid flavors and earthy notes.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2000 | Score: 87

A good mild to medium bodied cigar. Although it lacks a bit of depth, there is a solid core of nuts and herb flavors. A bit of dryness on the finish.

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

A good-looking cigar with a golden brown wrapper. It has a tight draw, with mild, creamy flavors and a note of toasted vanilla. A faint finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1997 | Score: 87

A well-made cigar with some characteristics of youth. But there is a solid core of cedar flavors with hints of nuts and a floral undertone.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Apr 01, 1996 | Score: 92

This is a pretty robusto with an excellent draw. It delivers earthy flavors while remaining smooth and round, and has hints of nutmeg and burnt spices.
