Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2005 | Score: 91

Dark and pressed, with great color, this cigar burns and draws well, showing cedar, spice, and cocoa bean.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Oct 19, 2004 | Score: 87

This square-pressed Churchill is smooth to the touch. It has a firm draw and an average burn. It tastes flat, with notes of dry wood and wheat. It could use more complexity.
