A box-pressed cigar whose toasty intonations and subtle woodiness lead to
notes of French roast coffee with touches of macadamia and walnut.

Perfumey and woody in character, this box-pressed torpedo smokes evenly,
delivering some toasty notes with a dry woody finish.

Thick and pressed with a matte brown wrapper, this cigar holds a
solid ash and offers some floral, grassy character that dissipates quickly.
