A dark robusto with a rustic wrapper and round head. It starts earthy and woody before warming to show lots of leather, coffee and molasses character. A tasty smoke once it settles in.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2015 | Score: 85

A bit spongy and soft, this dark cigar offers initial notes of earth, leather and coffee bean, but poor burn and constant relights affected the taste.

The wrapper of this robusto is dark and a bit on the rustic side in appearance. The smoke is meaty without being overpowering and delivers some chocolate notes and a chewy finish.
