101. H. Upmann Robusto Añejados

Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, silky smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel, with an unusual square boxpressed form.

Cold draw: Nutty, cedarwood and dry hay.

1st third: Starts of smooth, when the smoke leaves the mouth it dries out with a woody finish and a bitter coffee.

2nd third: Keeps the same flavours from part 1, very steady and smooth.

The burn: Burns a little wonky but nothing to crazy, white-ish ash, firm and stable, think it’s mostly because it’s boxpressed.

Smoke: A very compact feel of the cigar, so it gives it a tight draw, with a fairly voluminous white smoke. It’s warm to the touch since you have to fight it with the draw.

3rd third: Gets the sharp and bitter characteristics back from the first part, bitter black coffee.

Conclusion: Fairly strong, heavy notes of dark roasted bitter coffee, not a cigar for the classical Cuban smoker. Tight draw aswell which dosen’t boost the scoring.

Result: In my book this is an 85 point cigar.
