|This Churchill burns unevenly but draws well imparting a chewy smoke that is strong and spicy. A sweet dried apple note balances out the full-bodied flavors.|

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

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

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

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.

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