Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2002 | Score: 89

This box pressed cigar is very silky. It's a good performer, drawing and burning well, with a spicy, woody flavor and a hint of cayenne pepper. Medium bodied and pleasant.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2000 | Score: 88

A well-balanced cigar. It has earth and coffee bean flavors on the palate with a hint of dried fruit. A bit short on the finish.
