265. Punch 48 LCDH/HS

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.
