247. Royal Danish Viking Stories Valhalla Burning

Sponsored by Royal Danish Cigars.

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

Information: The Viking Series from Royal Danish Cigars are grown in Matagalpa, which is actually a highland coffee region in Nicaragua. There the climate is cooler, which means the tobacco grows slower, making it more flavourful and and powerful(just like a viking).
Tobacco from Ecuador and Nicaragua.

Size: 4×60, Gordito

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, silky smooth and tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel all over when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Pine wood and a fresh note.

1st third: Starts with a roasted nuts, oak wood and cacao nibs.

2nd third: Gets a hint of toasted bread otherwise the previous flavours keeps the same.

Burn: Burns fast and steady but pretty wonky. The ash is stable and firm with a white-ish colour.

Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a medium heat feel on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: Keeps the same from previous parts.

Duration: 15:00-15:40, 40 min.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar and a medium strength profile.

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