Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Driftwood.

1st third: Starts of with a espresso, driftwood and light smoked meat flavour, very interesting.

2nd third: Gets hints of metallic, but nothing to overwhelming to disturb the other previous flavours.

  1. This was gifted to me many years ago, from a friend who bought them in Indonesia in 1975, so I’d say it’s near impossible to find this vintage cigar again. But I’m sure you’ll be able to find the brand around the world.
