Gifted by Hedon Cigars.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Size: 4×48, Short Robusto.
Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Cedarwood.
1st third: Starts with a medium roasted coffee, 80% cacao powder, chestnut and cedarwood in the background.
2nd third: Gets a slight white pepper spice on the tongue, otherwise keeps the same.
Burn: Burns a little wonky with a dark gray firm and unstable ash. Had to re-light it a bunch of times because it just stopped burning while I was drawing.
Smoke: Medium light smoke with a medium to warm heat feeling on the tongue with a medium light draw.
3rd third: Keeps the previous flavours well balanced.
Duration: 19:25-20:15, 50 min.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. If it didn’t have all the burn problems it would have scored higher.
Result: In my book this is an 87 point cigar.
