Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2016 | Score: 91

A softly pressed corona with rounded edges and tapered shoulders. The burn is notably firm, but delivers a chewy smoke full of brown sugar notes and baking spices balanced by cedar and a marzipan finish.

This good-looking cigar has a flat cap and an attractive brown wrapper. The aroma is toasty. It’s balanced and pleasant, with leathery, earthy notes.

A cigar with a very tight draw. Although it has some nice citrus-style flavors, it ended up lacking complexity.
