Gifted by a friend.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Size: 6.5×52, Perfecto. (Soft Boxpressed).
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Fairly firm with a even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Sweet wood note.
1st third: Starts with a buttery biscuit, sweet and salty nutty note and oakwood.
2nd third: Added note of cacao to the previous flavours.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable white ash.
Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a medium heat feel on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: A kick of black pepper tickle the tongue oh so lightly, it’s also front heavy on cacao, sweet and salty nuts with a firm finish of oakwood.
Duration: 16:05-17:20, 1h 15 min.
Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. I would most definitely want to smoke this cigar again, it performed very well. I could even leave it for a bit without it going out.
Result: In my book this is an 92 point cigar.
