36. Vivaldi The Hitman

Sponsored by Vivaldi Ciagars. Swedish National Day 🇸🇪 Review.
Silky smooth wrapper, milk chocolate in colour. Firm construction.
First taste, medium roasted coffee, with a slight bitterness but nothing to harsh, I get a background note of wheat like a digestive biscuit, very enjoyable.
2nd part it starts to smoothen out and brings along a 60% milk chocolate note which makes it very yummy.
And I must say the ash is very stable all though it’s a windy day here in Sweden with 20°C.
In the 3d and final part it gets a little sharper with a 75% dark chocolate note on the front half of the tongue. Sure there is the bitterness as you get from dark chocolate but it’s not uncomfortable, it gives the smoke a statement power of here I am. Like I’ve been waiting for you to turn up, well here I am, come and get me. I like it, it’s something unique.
Unique is a good 91 points in my book.
It certainly beat the Patrón but isn’t that what the Hitman is suppose to do if you read between the lines, it’s an underdog lurking in the dark waiting for the moment to strike. Well done Zakarias. /Cigarmaster André
