|A light, oily wrapper covers this well-made cigar. The draw is inconsistent, and flavors start out papery, but woody notes and some sweetness eventually come through.|

An attractive cigar with an oily wrapper. It burns well, with a powdery white ash. It’s creamy, with some cocoa notes and a bready finish. A balanced, medium bodied smoke perfect for the morning.

Oily and solid, this cigar has a balanced draw. The burn could be better. The peppery smoke has a matching sweetness and notes of ginger. Age will improve the flavor.

A blond, solid cigar. It fills the mouth with thick smoke and has a sweet, herbal quality. It is mild and lightly earthy. Some tasters noted a loose draw.

A well-made cigar that has a nutty character over a solid spicy core. There is a slight herbal dryness on the finish.
