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

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.

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

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

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.

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.
