178. Brick House Connecticut Toro

Sponsored by J.C.Newman Cigars.

Location: This review was made outdoors during an gray cool autumn afternoon with 13°C.

Wrapper: Cream light brown wrapper with a smooth feel and slightly protruding veins.

Construction: Firm but still a little giving feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Light hay notes.

1st third: Starts with a nutty sweetness, pine sap wood, and a brioche bun finish.

2nd third: Keeps a steady flavour profile from part one through part two.

The burn: Burns steady with a white-ish stable and firm ash.

Smoke: Voluminous white creamy smoke with a cool feeling on the tounge and a light draw.

3rd third: Keeps the same smooth and creamy nutty notes all the way trough, with a hint of 70% dark chocolate towards the end. The wood and sweet brioche bun notes stays more in the background.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a mild strength profile. Overall a very enjoyable cigar to enjoy during a day where you don’t want to be distracted to much by complex flavours.

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