257. Toscano Duecento 1818-2018 200th Anniversary Edition

Store bought at Cigarrummet.

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.
