Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2002 | Score: 85

Pale and veiny, this cigar burns and draws well, with a pleasant aroma. The smoke has an oatmeal note and hints of cedar, paper and metal. The mild to medium-bodied smoke finishes a bit short.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2001 | Score: 83

This wrinkly, pale cigar is tart, with papery notes of balsa wood. A mild cigar.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Sep 01, 1998 | Score: 84

This cigar has hints of cocoa and sweet wood, with a touch of coffee on the finish. Medium-bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1997 | Score: 86

This is a solid mild-to medium-bodied cigar. It has a woody character with some hints of nuts, and a slightly vegetal finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Aug 01, 1996 | Score: 87

A solid cigar with an easy draw that fills the mouth with smoke. While toasty flavors were noted, the cigar is hampered by sour and bitter flavors that dry the palate.
