A semi-box-pressed cigar covered in a dark brown leaf. It’s chewy and woody with nutty leathery notes and a slight sweetness. Medium to full bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Dec 05, 2006 | Score: 87

Pressed and veiny, this cigar’s flavors have a dull wood character with some sweet and savory meat notes. The finish is cedary and floral.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Sep 07, 2004 | Score: 88

This coarse and slightly pressed cigar has a superb cap. It has a firm draw and a toasty aroma. Though it has woody flavors with hints of earth and leather, it lacks overall depth. The finish has a note of coffee.

A firm cigar with a grayish wrapper. Although hampered by a tight draw, this cigar shows off flavors of toast and orange peel. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Sep 01, 1996 | Score: 88

This is a solid, spicy cigar with a sweet cocoa-bean backbone. A touch rustic, but very rich and tasty.

An elegant cigar with medium body and smooth flavors of nutmeg and toffee and a hint of cedar on the finish.
