Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2008 | Score: 89

Dark and oily, this torpedo draws well. Sweet tobacco flavors carry hints of cherry and coca, but the finish is slightly chemical.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2005 | Score: 88

A dark, oily torpedo that smokes well. It’s charry, with sweet cedary notes and a nutty finish. Medium-bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Aug 24, 2004 | Score: 88

A potent torpedo with a fine cap and a dark, shiny wrapper. The burn starts out unevenly, but straightens out. Flavors are creamy with notes of coffee and cocoa. There's light spice on the finish with a hint of vanilla.
