491. La Preferida 452 Short Robusto

Gifted by Gajane Cigars.

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

Wrapper: Ecuador Habano Colorado
Binder: Mexico
Filler: Nicaragua & Honduras

Size: 4×52, Short Robusto.

Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Light wood note.

1st third: Starts with a toasted brioche bun, dried fruits, anise and cedarwood.

2nd third: Keeps a consistent flavour profile, with added white pepper spice on the lips and the back on the mouth.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable white ash.

Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a hot feeling on the tongue and a medium tight draw.

3rd third: No changes from part 2.

Duration: 19:20-20:00, 40min.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium to full strength profile. Not really a cigar that fits my palette, but fun that I have tried it at least. I can understand how people may like it.

Result: In my book this is an 88 point cigar.
