Wrapper: Ecuadorian Corojo
Binder: Dominican Monte Plata from Davidoff Lot 97 Yamasa
Filler: Dominican Republic & Nicaragua

Size: 6.5×56, Toro Grande.

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

Construction: Fairly firm and even when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Light wood notes, hay and flowers.

1st third: Starts with a medium roasted coffee note, but with a floral touch like a meadow buttercup.

2nd third: Overall it keeps the same but with hints of cedarwood and a red pepper with a nice fruity sweet note to it.

Burn: Burns sharp and hasty with a firm and stable white ash.

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

3rd third: Loses it’s floral and slight spice and just hones in to the coffee and cedarwood notes.

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

Result: In my book this is an 92 point cigar.
