Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2016 | Score: 89

Floral and woody, this corona takes on a fruity, citrus quality before a chalky finish. It draws and burns evenly.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2014 | Score: 91

A tawny-colored corona that imparts plenty of dense, creamy smoke fortified with baking-spice notes ranging from cinnamon and nutmeg to spicy ginger and cloves.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Apr 21, 2009 | Score: 88

A small cigar that is firm to the touch. There’s some resistance on the draw, but it delivers a thick, sweet smoke with woody, nutty flavors and a toasty finish.
