|Well made with a good draw, this cigar has a solid core of distinctly nutty flavors that have an underlying creaminess. French peanut notes and a touch of caramel on the finish make this a very tasty medium-bodied smoke.|

There's a dullish hue to the wrapper of this Churchill, which begins with herbal and mineral notes that lead to a charry finish.

This cigar is woody with an excellence balance. It has a smooth pepper and nut component on the palate, and there is a sweet, flinty note on the finish.

A rich, dark wrapper that gleams with oil. The smoke is easygoing, with sweet wood and caramel flavors and a toasty finish. An elegant, refined smoke.
