This lumpy, veiny cigar has some leather notes and a raisin sweetness, though metallic notes emerge on the finish.

This dark toro is coarse and toothy. It has a pleasant aroma. One-dimensional flavors have potential, smacking of cocoa and espresso bean. The finish is woody.

Scaly and veiny, this poorly burning cigar has a sharp, stinging flavor. Acrid and very harsh on the palate.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Aug 01, 2000 | Score: 87

A shiny, solid cigar. The draw is balanced and the smoke is packed with peppery notes. A rustic, herbal smoke with a short finish.
