A near-pristine short robusto with a sweet, toasty maple and brown sugar quality. Hints of wood and nutmeg usher in the slightly sharp finish.

A petit robusto with a great draw and even burn. Prominent cedar and earth notes harmonize with salty, roasted peanut impressions and a floral finish.

Covered in a wrinkled wrapper, this cigar leaves notes of dried orange peel, earth and smoked meat on the palate. Full bodied and tastier than it looks.

A well-rolled, squat robusto with an impeccable draw and burn. It’s a meaty, medium-bodied toasty smoke that is not overly complex but hearty and flavorful.

There’s an array of flavors on this cigar ranging from coffee and leather to stony notes. The finish has a bit of oak. The draw remains even throughout.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2007 | Score: 93

A perfectly capped short robusto with a great wrapper. The flavor profile is diverse and sophisticated with meaty spicy flavors that take on a good shot of cocoa and leather. It gets better and better as it’s smoked.

A perfectly capped cigar in a gorgeous golden-brown wrapper. Its cedar and leather flavors are rich, but not overpowering. The finish is toasty, earthy and elegant.
