This toasty, nutty cigar is underscored by cereal notes and a hint of maple sweetness. A mild to medium-bodied smoke.

A rough, grayish petit corona that offers an earthy, tangy smoke with a heavy mineral finish. Could use more balance.

A dark cigar with wood and caramel on the palate, with a touch of licorice. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2004 | Score: 88

This cigar has an alluring wrapper, and a near-perfect draw and burn. It’s loaded with earthy, toasty flavors wrapped around a cedary core.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Feb 01, 2004 | Score: 88

This toothy little cigar is dry to the touch. It’s strong and woody with a long, peppery finish.
