Gifted by Enrique Sanchez, owner of 1502 Cigars.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Tobaccos from Condega, Estelí, Jalapa and Ometepe.
Size: 5×50, Robusto (Soft Boxpressed).
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Medium firm but even with a little squizzy feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Cedarwood note.
1st third: Starts with a hazelnut note, light wood note and shortbread buttery sweetness.
2nd third: Keeps its previous flavours but with a toasted bready note.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm but flaky whiteish ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and light draw.
3rd third: Gets a predominant note of medium roasted coffee and the previous flavours hide more in the background.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.
Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
