Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth with small veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Chestnut, light spicy note on the lips.

1st third: Starts with a medium roasted coffee, earthy sweetness, light spice in the background.

2nd third: It keeps it’s previous flavours steady with hints of that chestnut I felt in the cold draw nicely building in the second part.

Burn: Burns a little wonky, but easily fixed. A little falky, but firm and stable ash with a whiteish colour.

Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: The spicy notes of black pepper steps forward and takes a bigger role in the final third. There are still hints of earthiness and coffee but more towards the darker tones.

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

Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
