A roughly made Churchill with a sloppy cap. It’s a toasty, creamy cigar that occasionally smacks of spicy hot pepper. Tastes much better than it looks

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2014 | Score: 89

Covered in a notably veiny wrapper, this cigar has a bit of a firm draw that shows plenty of sweet woody notes, cocoa bean and a hint of orange peel.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2010 | Score: 90

Dark and oily with a strikingly even burn. Flavors start out with a mineral sweetness, then progress to a balance of spice, coffee bean and wood.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2007 | Score: 89

A toothy and veiny smoke that performs well. It’s dry at first, then becomes sweet and woody. Coffee bean flavors are also present on this balanced medium-bodied cigar.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2006 | Score: 88

A dark, oily cigar with a superb draw. It has notes of cocoa bean and spicy anise, with a touch of herbal qualities. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 15, 2005 | Score: 87

This cigar has excellent color and shine. Strong tobacco flavors are complemented by earth notes. The long finish smacks of licorice spice, cream and coffee.
