169. Quai D’Orsay No.50

Gifted by my colleague Conny Ankargren, at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.

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

Wrapper: Light brown, silky smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Medium firm with a good feel.

Cold draw: Clear notes of sandalwood.

1st third: Starts with a smooth but still dry sandalwood note, a hazelnutiness with a sweet touch.

2nd third: Perfect light and smooth notes, all the way through the first and second part.

The burn: Burns fast and sharp with a stable white-ish ash.

Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a medium heat feel on the tounge. Light draw.

3rd third: Keeps the same light wood notes from previous parts.

Conclusion: A mild bodied cigar with a mild strength profile. Perfect morning, afternoon or after dinner smoke.

Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
