263. La Galera Connecticut Tabaquero Presidente

From my own collection.

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

Information: La Galera Connecticut cigars are Jose “Jochy” Blanco’s homage to the soul of the cigar factory: “la Galera” is the roller’s room, the heart of the action. And it’s Jochy’s factory, Tabacalera Palma, that’s been responsible for a slew of the much-heralded Dominican boutiques – Aging Room and Señorial, among them.
Tabacco from Dominican Rep and Ecuador.

Size: 7.25×50, Churchill.

Wrapper: Nutty, oily and smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel, when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Milk chocolate and light wood.

1st third: Nutty, cacao and cedarwood.

2nd third: Same smooth flavours.

Burn: Sharp burn, white stable and firm ash.

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

3rd third: No changes.

Duration: 14:30-15:50, 1h 20min.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar, with a medium strength profile. For being a Churchill it smoked pretty fast.

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