301. El Rey del Mundo Edición Regional Países Bajos NL No.1 2011

From my own collection.

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


El Rey del Mundo is a current pre-revolution brand, established in 1882.
The range comprises light to medium strength cigars using tobacco from the premium Vuelta Abajo region in Cuba.
Numbered Slide Lid Box of 10 cigars (2,500 made).

Size: 4.5×52, Petit Robusto (Mágicos).

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

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Rich note of cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a cedarwood, light spicy note in the background and a bitter almond taste.

2nd third: Keeps the flavours but added a taste of toasted bread.

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

Smoke: Light smoke, medium heat feel on the tongue and a tight draw.

3rd third: No changes.

Duration: 19:00-20:00, 1h.

Conclusion: A mild bodied cigar with a mild strength profile. I think this is still to young, it needs a couple of years more. Very tight draw.

Result: In my book this is an 86 point cigar.
