Tasting Note
Covered in a picture-perfect wrapper that is silky to the touch. It starts out with a salty, nutty flavor, growing richer with coffee notes and a toasty finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2014 | Score: 88

A bit rumpled and discolored, this cigar shows a woody, toasty character that leaves a creamy, coffee-like aftertaste. Medium bodied.
