Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2003 | Score: 87

A dark cigar with good texture to the wrapper. The burn is off at first, but it tends to even out. The smoke has rich, intriguing flavors including almonds, leather and caramel. Medium to full bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Sep 01, 2002 | Score: 89

This well-made cigar has a toothy, veiny wrapper. The draw and burn are inconsistent. Flavors of fruit and nuts lead to a leathery finish.
