Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2013 | Score: 88

This fat Churchill is covered in a streaky wrapper and three-seam cap. The burn is a bit uneven, though the draw is full, imparting toasty and cedary flavors with touches of sweetness and nutty notes. The finish is a bit charry.

Large and toothy with a notably uneven burn, though it is a tasty balance of spicy, leathery flavors and sweet cedar notes. A medium-bodied smoke.
