102. Partagas No.1 Edicion Limitada 2017

Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.

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

Wrapper: Dark chocolate, rough oily wrapper with slightly protruding veins.

Construction: Fairly even feel, not to firm.

Cold draw: Slightly sweet hay notes.

1st third: Smooth, oak wood notes with a touch of cane sugar and a medium roasted coffee after taste.

2nd third: Keeps the previous flavors plus some hints of leather.

The burn: Fairly sharp, with some slight wonky spots but nothing to dramatic. The ash is mostly stable with some flaky bits.

Smoke: Voluminous and white, with a warm feeling.

3rd third: Gets a little sharp and bitter towards the end sadly, otherwise it keeps the flavours from previous parts.

Conclusion: Good cigar, medium to full flavour wise. Think this will evolve beautifully with some age but still very good at the moment.

Result: In my book this is a 89 point cigar.
