Oils are seeping through the wrapper of this slim cigar, which combines the botanical flavors of juniper, anis and vanilla with heady notes of chocolate-covered almonds.

A beautifully crafted smoke with a meaty, incense quality and molasses sweetness, though underlying acidity affected the score.

Slim and dark with some gnarly veins to the wrapper. It draws and burns evenly, showing a creamy smoke that hints of lavendar and hickory before a charry finish.

Tawny in appearance this Lonsdale is sweet, floral and complex, opening with freshly grated vanilla bean notes that take on graham cracker flavors and an maraschino cherry finish.

Finished with a rough cap, this cigar has a dark, attractive wrapper and even draw. This is a full-bodied, spicy smoke with lots of red pepper in the nose.
