158. H.Upmann Sir Winston Gran Reserva Cosecha 2011

Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.

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

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky smooth wrapper with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel.

Cold draw: Light pencil wood notes and a nutty hint in the background.

1st third: Starts of with a hazelnutiness and a dry pencil wood finish.

2nd third: There is a slight hint of cedar wood, that slight spicy wood note. The previous notes from part 1 is still there but with a smoother feel.

The burn: Burns steady and sharp with a white-ish flaky ash.

Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a cool feeling on the tounge.

3rd third: The flavours gets a little bit more intense, medium roasted coffee with a hint of cacao and the pencil wood.

Conclusion: This cigar was just what I needed, it made me very relaxed. Medium bodied cigar with a medium strength overall. Perfect for a early evening starter, as it eases you in to a great evening.

Result: In my book this is an 95 point cigar.
