Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2016 | Score: 90

A primarily floral cigar with hints of wood, cinnamon and a vanilla bean finish. It's constructed with a neat, three-seam cap and flat head.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2012 | Score: 90

Softly pressed with rounded edges and a flat head. An overly earthy start eventually leaqves nutty, floral impressions that are slightly sweet with graham cracker, however an underlying earthiness remains.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2011 | Score: 93

There is firmness to the draw of this large cigar, but a lot of complexity, as coconut and almond notes are balanced by dried orange peel and earthy flavors with each puff.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Apr 27, 2010 | Score: 92

An exemplary double corona with the perfect amount of resistance on the draw. There is a flavorful and balanced interplay of rich, sweet, nutty flavors, tea notes and cocoa.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2008 | Score: 92

Pretty and plush exterior with an essentially woody flavor core once it's lit. Leather and coffee bean impressions emerge on the palate as well before a long, spicy, chewy finish. Rich and balanced.

This large cigar is nearly perfect in appearance .It has a smooth flavor with a creamy, spicy quality. There are hints of coffee and cocoa. Medium to full bodied.
