Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2008 | Score: 85

A coarse, dull little cigar that is sweet and gritty with some earthy, wood notes and a sweet finish. Could use more dimension.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2005 | Score: 87

A thin, short and toothy cigar with a lush, easy draw. The smoke is rich and woody, with a bitter coffee finish and a hint of cocoa on the palate.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2004 | Score: 82

Rough in appearance, with an easy draw, verging on loose. The smoke is woody and vegetal.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jul 01, 1998 | Score: 86

A wrinkled wrapper with a rough cap. It tastes herbal and toasty. Some inconsistency.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Nov 01, 1997 | Score: 89

A well-balanced cigar with a medium body. It has a hint of coffee grounds and toastiness with a light, sweet tobacco finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jul 01, 1997 | Score: 90

This dark, oily cigar is well made. It's medium-bodied, beginning with a touch of sweet vanilla and changing to an herbal, earthy smoke.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 1995 | Score: 84

This is a mild cigar with a good draw. There is dryness in the smoke, but there are some flavors of white pepper and flint, and an overall herbal character.
