Gifted by Les Drent, owner of Kauai Cigars.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens cigar lounge.
Information: The Island Prince is made with Kauai (Hawaii) tobacco and it’s wrapped in a dark Habano leaf grown in Nicaragua. Got this during an event at our shop summer 2017.
Size: 6 1/8×52, Torpedo.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky-smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Light cedarwood note.
1st third: Starts of with a milk chocolate, coffee nibs and pastry.
2nd third: Keeps it’s previous flavours but with a hint of coconut added, never felt anything like it before in a cigar.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp, white stable and firm ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke, medium heat feel on the tongue and a medium light draw.
3rd third: Keeps it’s flavour profile from previous parts.
Duration: 20:15-21:15, 1h.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium to full strength profile.
Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
