Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2015 | Score: 87

A dark robusto pinstriped with lighter tobacco, this two-toned cigar starts out herbal but becomes heavier in body with rich woodiness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2009 | Score: 89

A carefully constructed, two-toned dark cigar pinstriped with a lighter wrapper leaf. It draws and burns well showing a cedary core of flavors with hints of apple and licorice. A sharp note emerges on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Oct 09, 2007 | Score: 88

Pinstriped with a light wrapper, this dark robusto draws well. It is a sweet and spicy, woody cigar with some earthy notes.
