Gifted back in 2014 by Yelitze Enchenique Lokrantz, former owner of BOTL Shop Sweden.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Size: 6.1×54, Torpedo.
Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: A medium soft but even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Oakwood.
1st third: Starts with a rich dark roasted coffee like an espresso, earthy sweetness and oakwood.
2nd third: No changes in taste.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm but unstable whiteish ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a medium light draw.
3rd third: Keeps a well balanced flavour profile until the very end.
Duration: 12:45-14:15, 1h 30min.
Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. I never tried these cigars when they where new, but now after 8 years, they have aged well, still keeping a well balanced flavour profile.
Result: In my book this is an 87 point cigar.
