There's a reddish, colorado-maduro gleam to this dark cigar, whose creamy smoke is lush with fruity, ripe apple notes, molasses and brown sugar. The finish is long and spicy. Tasty and bold.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2009 | Score: 90

A toothy, near veinless wrapper covers this cigar. The draw offers a lot of rich wood and toasty flavors that lead to a spicy, orange peel finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2005 | Score: 87

There’s a pleasant sheen on this maduro, which has black cherry notes, hints of wood and a chewy flavor. The finish is long and sweet. Medium- to full-bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 16, 2004 | Score: 85

This oily, coarse robusto has metallic and wood notes, and a harsh and sharp flavor.
