Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens cigar lounge.
Information: Tobacco from Cuba.
Size: 5.5×48, Grand Corona.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, smooth and oily but with slightly protruding veins.
Construction: Spongy feel when lightly squeezed. It’s very odd to find this in a Cuban.
Cold draw: Strong taste of cedarwood.
1st third: Starts of with a nutty coffee note and cedarwood background.
2nd third: Keeps it’s previous flavours but dialed down a notch.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp, with a stable and firm white ash.
Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: Keeps pretty much the same all the way, a little bit sharper towards the end, but nothing uncomfortable.
Duration: 17:50-19:05, 1h 15min.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.
Result: In my book this is an 89 point cigar.
