344. Kaneda Klassica Opera

Gifted by Srecko Pavicevic, owner of Global Cigar.

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

This cigar is inspired from the cigars smoked in the recess between one time and another at the theater and the opera.
Wrapper: Connecticut & Habano Ecuador.
Binder: Peru.
Filler: Dominican Republic, Peru and Nicaragua.
Made in Costa Rica.

Size: 3.42×60, Sumo Short Robusto.

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

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Light wood and hay note.

1st third: Starts with a woody roasted coffee bean flavour, hints of bitterness in the back, but nothing uncomfortable.

2nd third: Keeps the previous flavours but now with a added earthy sweetness.

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

Smoke: Light smoke with a warm feeling on the tongue and a medium light draw.

3rd third: No change from part 2.

Duration: 20:25-21:05, 40min.

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

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