From my own collection.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic
Size: 6×50, Toro.
Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and silky smooth with small veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Hay and barnyard.
1st third: Starts with a note of hay, nutty and a finish of ash.
2nd third: Keeps it’s previous flavours, pretty drab with the ash taste.
Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and stable gray ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: There’s only taste of ash left.
Duration: 21:40-22:55, 1h 15min.
Conclusion: A mild bodied cigar with a mild strength profile. With the taste of ash all the way through it wasn’t enjoyable at all, I wanted to throw it away instantly, but stayed hoping it would change but it didn’t. I have smoked other cigars from their brand that I did like so I think this is just this specific blend. I’ve smoked this cigar twice before when I first bought it back in 2016 and I started to remember during this review why I left this one in my humidor.
Result: In my book this is an 83 point cigar.
