Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2010 | Score: 85

A pigtailed lancero with a rich, dark and veiny wrapper. The draw is a bit firm, but imparts a primarily woody smoke leaving a dry, papery aftertaste to the palate.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2008 | Score: 89

A pigtailed lancero that burns evenly, though a bit hot in the beginning. It cools down to show a mellow balance of coffee bean and nutty flavors.
