Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2005 | Score: 88

A good performing maduro. It has intermittent spice, including some nose spice, as well as leather and cedar notes. Medium to full bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Mar 01, 2004 | Score: 85

A dark and shiny corona gorda. The draw on this cigar is firm and the burn is uneven. Some sweet wood flavors were noted, but it lacks depth.
