Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2013 | Score: 89

A bit firm on the draw, this woody cigar also carries notes of pepper, earth and walnuts, though the finish is a touch stemmy.

Though this corona burns unevenly, it draws well. Tart initial puffs become tasty with earth, leather and coffee bean.

The draw on this little cigar is firm, but this cigar is earthy and spicy with a sweet note on the finish.

An attractive cigar with a slightly firm draw and an even burn. It’s very woody, somewhat dry on the palate, but pleasantly toasty and creamy. Medium-bodied.

This cigar has a superb cap and a perfect draw. The burn starts crooked but corrects itself. It's a rich smoke with complex, hearty flavors including coffee, salted nuts, leather and black cherries.

A greenish, rough wrapper. The draw is firm, verging on tight. It's sour and tangy, with some papery, sour notes.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 1999 | Score: 91

A strong, full-bodied cigar that is well-made with a excellent red-brown wrapper. It has a sweet richness with leather, coffee ground and earth notes, a hint of black cherry. A little salty on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jun 01, 1996 | Score: 89

There is good color to this cigar, which burns unevenly but has a fine draw. It is smooth, with some spiciness, but vegetal and grassy tastes were also detected.
