The main range comprises medium to full-strength cigars.
All tobacco aged two years.
Dress Box of 10 cigars.
Size: 6.1×55, Robusto Extra (Maravillas No.3).

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Cedarwood.
1st third: Starts with a walnut and cacao combo with a oakwood note in the background.
2nd third: Keeps the flavours.
Burn: Burns a little bit wonky, with a stable and firm gray ash. Had to retouch it with the lighter, to keep it from burning to wonky.

3rd third: No changes.
Duration: 15:20-17:00, 1h 40min.
