Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2002 | Score: 86

Oily, firm and very dark, this cigar burns well. It's woody with a licorice flavor, and is medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2000 | Score: 86

A good cedar character. It has a medium body with hints of sweet herbs, and a light toasty note.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 1999 | Score: 86

A bit of harshness mars this cigar. It has a core of cedar taste on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 1998 | Score: 83

This cigar has a good dark wrapper, and there is a core of earthiness. But it seems quite young, and has a dry finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1996 | Score: 88

A solid, medium-bodied cigar with strong spice and cedar notes, and flavors of chocolate. It has a strong spicy finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Mar 01, 1993 | Score: 84

This cigar is big and rustic. A dark-brown wrapper with a rough finish, it's rich on the palate with powerful earthy flavors.
