Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2018 | Score: 87

A slim smoke with a veiny wrapper and tight pigtail cap. It draws well, though the burn is a bit uneven. Initial flintiness dissipates to show notes of nutmeg, ground pepper and a saccharine sweetness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2017 | Score: 90

Long and slim with a tight draw. The smoke begins light with sweet tea and a bit of gingersnap before chewier notes of molasses and cinnamon emerge.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2015 | Score: 90

Tightly packed with tobacco, this lancero has a bit of a firm draw but still produces a sweet and floral smoke full of nougat, vanilla bean and incense notes.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2013 | Score: 88

A lightly wrapped lancer with a pigtailed cap and firm draw. Floral, perfumey notes settle down to show black tea flavors and a hint of coffee.
