Gifted by Habanos Nordic.

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

Quai d’Orsay is a Current post-revolution brand, established in 1973, and commercially available from 1974.
The range comprises light strength cigars using tobacco from the premium Vuelta Abajo region in Cuba.

Size: 5.3×54, Robusto (Edmundo Grueso).

Wrapper: Light nutty shade, oily and silky-smooth, with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Light note of cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a light note of pine nut, sandalwood and light toasted bread.

2nd third: Keep it’s previous flavours.

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

Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: Flavourwise it’s the same but with empthy on the toasted bread.

Conclusion: A mild bodied cigar with a mild strength profile. Perfect morning or early afternoon smoke, should pair well with a blanc de blancs champagne or a cup of hot chocolate.

Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
