A box-pressed cigar with a slightly discolored wrapper, but a lush draw and dead-even burn. The smoke is toasty with nuts, spice and a cocoa sweetness that lingers on the palate for a long period of time.

Sharply box pressed with a few veins to the wrapper and an even, easy draw that delivers a toasty smoke with steady chocolate and nutty notes.

Draped in a silky wrapper, this pressed cigar draws and burns well. The smoke is medium bodied yet rich with savory wood and toasty flavors that hint of earth and minerals.

This robusto has a slightly veiny but very oily wrapper. Anise and toast flavors blossom into a strong black cherry note that turns cedary. The finish is spicy.

A perfectly box-pressed cigar. It draws and burns well, producing a rich aroma. Solid earthy flavors mingle with hints of leather and roasted almonds, with a thick, peppery finish. Medium bodied.
