More Reviews of this Cigar
Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2015 | Score: 92

An elegantly pressed torpedo whose lush draw imparts floral intonations with hints of raspberry tea. Rich, toasty notes of earth and nuts also come through before a cedary finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Sep 27, 2011 | Score: 91

A squarely pressed pyramid that draws and burns evenly. Woody flavors become cedary and pronounced, taking on vanilla, almond and floral notes.
