Gifted by Jeremy Casdagli owner of Bespoke Cigars.
Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm but still a little giving when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Creamy and nutty notes.
1st third: Starts with a nutty and creamy sandalwood note.
2nd third: In the second part there’s a growing taste of hazelnut spread like a not so sweet Nutella on a fluffy brioche bun. There is still a clear note of sandalwood in the background keeping the flavours centered in the mouth.
The burn: Burns steady with a white-ish stable and firm ash.
Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a cool feeling on the tounge and a light draw.
3rd third: Towards the end it got some spicy notes appear up in the roof if the mouth. Otherwise the flavors keeps the same all the way.
Conclusion: What a perfect cigar to enjoy while reading a book about horses or what ever you like to read about. Medium bodied with a medium strength profile. Light draw and great construction. Would have loved to have a XO cognac with this one, maybe next time.
Result: In my book this is an 91 point cigar.
