Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2009 | Score: 86

Pressed and attractive with an even draw and bur. The mild- to medium-bodied smoke carries some toasty flavors as well as odd sawdust notes.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 19, 2007 | Score: 89

Slightly pressed, this cigar delivers mostly woody flavors, complemented by leather and tobacco notes. The finish is cedary and oily with a subtle sweetness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2007 | Score: 90

A lush, well-made cigar with a perfect cap. The cigar is ready and chewy, with complex, intriguing flavors. Notes of tea, cream and leather come through. It’s a gutsy, medium to full bodied cigar, with a long, cedary finish.

Roughly made, this cigar is leathery, creamy and woody. It's surprisingly mild, with a flat finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2000 | Score: 86

A good medium-bodied cigar. Although it's a bit dry on the palate, there are hints of dried citrus and spice. It's a bit closed down on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 1999 | Score: 88

A medium to full bodied cigar. It has some meaty and earthy notes on the palate. There is hint of cinnamon on the palate. But it ends a little dry.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1994 | Score: 87

Some inconsistency in this otherwise rich cigar, with spicy, nutty flavors and a long finish.
