Store bought at Cigarrummet.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Honduran Habana Jamastrán
Size: 5.5×54, Torpedo.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oliy and silky smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Sandalwood, cacao and floral notes.
1st third: Starts with a cappuccino creamy note, sandalwood and pepper spice.
2nd third: Keeps the previous flavours with added hints of toasted bread, cacao and almonds.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable whiteish ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke, with a medium heat feel on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: The floral notes felt in the cold draw appears with the peppery spice like a red chilli combination, keeping the sandalwood all through with a earthy sweet note keeping it together. The aftertaste after letting the cigar rest for a bit reminds me of Swedish cinnamon crispbread.
Duration: 15:35-16:45, 1h 10min.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. It’s interesting since there’s always something happening during the smoke experience.
Result: In my book this is an 92 point cigar.
