Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens cigar lounge.
Made in Nicaragua.
Made for the European market, to appease the flavours of Cuban smokers.
Size: 6×52, Toro.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky-smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Nutty note.
1st third: Starts with a nutty and light wood note.
2nd third: Gets a light spicy note on the lips and a touch of milk chocolate added to the previous nutty and wooden notes.
Burn: Burns hasty and wonky, with a firm and stable white ash.
Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a medium light draw.
3rd third: Looses most of it’s previous flavours, now it’s more wet leaves, some spicy and earthy notes. A definite downfall.
Duration: 18:15-19:25, 1h 10min.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.
Result: In my book this is an 87 point cigar.
