Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2008 | Score: 91

A big, thick cigar that offers a rich balance of spice, earth and leather flavors that are medium to full bodied.

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

Rich in color, this cigar burns and draws well. Predominant cedar flavors are underscored by chocolate, spice and light herbal notes. The long finish carries notes of pepper and cocoa.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2005 | Score: 89

A veiny and oily maduro that has a sweet wood taste and a touch of rose petals. The finish smacks of orange peel. Strong, with a medium- to full-bodied character.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2003 | Score: 86

Oily, rumpled and veiny, with a rich, dark brown wrapper. The draw and burn are decent. It has a dull, woody flavor, with hints of fruit. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 2003 | Score: 86

This extra large smoke is veiny and dark brown. Its draw and burn are off. It's earthy, with hints of leather and sweet spice, but the finish is sour.
