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

This robusto is enrobed in a light but richly hued wrapper. A good draw delivers well-balanced, creamy flavors of cedar wood and a lightly spicy finish. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2005 | Score: 85

The wrapper on this cigar is poorly stretched. It has peppermint and paper flavors, with an acrid quality and some sweetness on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 2004 | Score: 91

This stout cigar has a shiny brown wrapper. It’s full in body and has a rich, heavy smoke. Flavors are leathery, smoky and slightly smoky. It’s well balanced, leading to a long, woody finish.
