|A well-made belicoso with a dark, oily wrapper. The draw is superb, and the cigar is lively on the palate. It is loaded with toasted almond flavors, with hints of coffee and cocoa. Medium-bodied.|

A well-stretched toothy wrapper adorns this cigar, which has a tight draw and is hard to light. The smoke is leathery and woody, with notes of ginger but a short finish. Medium to full bodied.

A cigar with a woody character. There are some hints of cocoa bean and cedar. A medium body with a light, dry finish.

This well-made belicoso draws and burns well. It's smooth, light and earthy, with a hint of sweet spices. Medium-bodied.
