Gifted by Robert Caldwell, owner of Caldwell Cigars.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens cigar lounge.
Information: Didn’t get much info about this cigar, only that it only was a few weeks old and should be smoked when it’s still “fresh”. If I remember correctly it was Dominican tobacco.
Size: 4.9×52, Robusto.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm and even all over when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Hay and cedarwood.
1st third: Starts with a coffee bean, hay and spice mix.
2nd third: Smoothens out a bit but still with it’s original flavours.
Burn: White stable and firm ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke, warm feeling on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: Keeps the same.
Duration: 18:28-19:29, 1h
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.
Result: In my book this is an 88 point cigar.
