337. Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Toro

Gifted by a friend.

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

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut.
Binder: Nicaragua.
Filler: Dominican piloto cubano and Nicaraguan seco and viso.

Size: 6×52, Toro.

Wrapper: Light almond, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel all over when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Plums and hay.

1st third: Starts with a toasted bread, nutty creamy note and white pepper lingering in the background.

2nd third: Flavourwise it keeps the same.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and white ash, but easily taped off.

Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a medium heat feel on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: No changes to the taste, but it really dried up the mouth.

Duration: 21:30-22:35, 1h 5min.

Conclusion: A mild bodied cigar with a mild strength profile.

Result: In my book this is an 85 point cigar.
