Gifted by Jean-Michel Louis, Brand Ambassador and In-house Belgian at De Los Reyes Cigars.
Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Dark chocolate, oily and smooth feel with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel.
Cold draw: Dark chocolate, hazelnuts and earthy sweetness.
1st third: Dark chocolate, sandalwood, hazelnuts and a spicy note in the back.
2nd third: The second part keeps pretty uniform with the first part, maybe a tad bit creamier with the combination of hazelnuts and chocolate.
The burn: Burns steady and slowly with a firm white ash.
Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a medium heat feel on the tounge.
3rd third: Keeps the overall flavours with a bit darker touch to it. So more dark chocolate and a touch of bark (wood).
Conclusion: A very enjoyable and yummy cigar. Medium bodied with a medium bodied strength. Think this cigar works just fine as it is no drinks needed. But if you want something with I guess a dark rum without added sugar or a cup of medium roasted coffee.
Result: In my book this is an 92 point cigar.
