Tasting Note
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.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jul 01, 2002 | Score: 87

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.
