295. Royal Danish Viking Stories Odin’s Revenge

Gifted by Jan Vistisen, owner of Royal Danish Cigars.

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

Information: The Viking Series from Royal Danish Cigars are grown in Matagalpa, which is actually a highland coffee region in Nicaragua. There the climate is cooler, which means the tobacco grows slower, making it more flavourful and and powerful(just like a viking). (Vikings where the first Europeans to discover America, not Columbus).

Size: 7.5×60, Churchill Gigante.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily, silky-smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Slight peppery notes, caramel sweetness and hints of cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a caramel milk chocolate creamy smooth note with a light spice tingle on the lips and cedarwood in the background.

2nd third: Keeps the same flavours but with a spicier note in the aftertaste.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp, firm and stable white ash.

Smoke: Fairly light smoke, cool feelings on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: Keeps the flavours and the spicy note from previous parts.

Duration: 19:50- 21:15, 1h 25min.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. I really thought the cigar would take longer to smoke but it still as really enjoyable.

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