432. Villa Zamorano Reserva Collection No. 15

Store bought at Cigarrummet.

Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Honduran Habana Jamastrán
Binder: Honduras
Filler: Honduras

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.
