Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2005 | Score: 88

A creamy wrapper with thin veins. The cigar has sweet wood flavors and a short finish smacking of cardboard. Mild.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1999 | Score: 84

A pleasant medium bodied cigar. It has some wood and nut flavors. But there is a touch of dryness on the palate, and a light vegetal note on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 1998 | Score: 83

A cigar that lacks real depth. It has a medium body, with some nutty flavors, but a strong vegetal note on the palate too.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Sep 01, 1997 | Score: 84

A young cigar with a slight gumminess to the wrapper. But it has an underlying sweet herbalness with a dry, woody finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: May 01, 1997 | Score: 83

A firm double corona. It burns fast and tastes hot. While it shows hints of sweet coffee, there are too many harsh notes.

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

This is a cigar with a dry taste on the finish but some nutty, mild spice flavors.
