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

A squarely-pressed petit corona full of rich, earthy tobacco fortified by a hearty combination of leather, cedar and sassafras notes that remain in balance. A sweet touch of candied fruit also comes through.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Sep 06, 2016 | Score: 88

This small cigar has an open, easy draw that leaves impressions of charred oak and faint vanilla bean on the palate. There are some waxy notes on the finish.
