Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2006 | Score: 89

An attractive cigar with an oily wrapper. It burns well, with a powdery white ash. It’s creamy, with some cocoa notes and a bready finish. A balanced, medium bodied smoke perfect for the morning.

This cigar has a firm draw, and it burns nicely. It's tangy and creamy, with vanilla and cedar notes. Mild to medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Sep 01, 2001 | Score: 89

Oily and solid, this cigar has a balanced draw. The burn could be better. The peppery smoke has a matching sweetness and notes of ginger. Age will improve the flavor.

This silky, oily cigar is a bit pale. It's nutty and grassy, with a medium-bodied flavor.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Aug 01, 1997 | Score: 85

A blond, solid cigar. It fills the mouth with thick smoke and has a sweet, herbal quality. It is mild and lightly earthy. Some tasters noted a loose draw.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 1996 | Score: 87

A well-made cigar that has a nutty character over a solid spicy core. There is a slight herbal dryness on the finish.
