Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2008 | Score: 87

Slim and box-pressed with a notably firm draw. Meaty peppery notes are complemented by some sweetness, but the tight draw hurt the score.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 02, 2004 | Score: 88

This slightly pressed cigar is chocolate brown. It's a solid medium-bodied smoke. Flavors include cocoa and a slight dryness was noted on the palate. The finish has more cocoa and roasted coffee.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2003 | Score: 86

A flat, well-made cap and an attractive wrapper. The draw is tight. It's creamy, cedary and toasty, but the finish as some green notes, suggesting youth.

A medium bodied cigar. It appears well made, but has a very easy draw. it has some good wood and leather notes, but it finishes a bit dry.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1994 | Score: 90

A well-made, full-bodied cigar that has an earthy aroma and complex flavors of spice and dried fruits.
