Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2012 | Score: 89

A dark, weighty Churchill with a bumpy head and thick veins. Mild tea notes build to a peppery smoke with some walnut undertones.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2010 | Score: 89

A big cigar whose initial, fleeting vegetal notes quickly turn to leather and toast flavors. The finish is floral.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2009 | Score: 86

Covered in a splotchy wrapper this cigar draws well. The smoke is cedary with citrus flavor and a dry finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2007 | Score: 87

Good texture to this nicely-made Churchill. Cedar and cocoa flavors are most apparent before subtle apple and light spice notes surface on the palate. A slow starter, but pleasantly medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2006 | Score: 90

A superbly crafted cigar with leather, earth and sweet spice notes, as well as some toast. A full-bodied blockbuster.
