Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens cigar lounge.
Information: Manifatture Sigaro Toscano celebrates the 200th anniversary of Toscano cigars with a new handmade cigar, unique in shape and smoke: the Toscano Duecento. Tobacco from Italy and North American Kentucky tobacco.
Size: 200mm / 7.87″
Wrapper: Dark chocolate, rough, bumpy and oily feel.
Construction: Firm as a tree trunk, when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Espresso and olive wood.
1st third: Starts of with a freshly baked loaf of artisan bread, dipped in olive oil on a plate. (A typical thing to eat along the Mediterranean Sea. Brings back childhood memories for me.) In the after taste I get hints of Espresso, earthy notes and wood.
2nd third: Keeps it’s previous flavours.
Burn: Stable and firm white ash, burns fairly sharp.
Smoke: Voluminous white smoke, medium heat feel on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: Keeps the same, but with the flavours gets a bit inteser.
Duration: 17:55-19:20, 1h 25min
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium to full strength profile. I’m quite surprised, I have only tried there toscanello with flavours before.
Result: In my book this is an 89 point cigar.
