Size: 5.2×54, Robusto.
Wrapper: Dark coffee bean, oily and smooth with clear protruding veins.
Construction: Medium firm, but even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Red chili, cacao and dried fruits.
1st third: Starts with a cacao, dried fruits, earthy sweetness and a light note of cane sugar.
2nd third: Keeps it’s previous flavours on a well balanced level.
Burn: Burns a bit uneven, had to re-light a few times during the time. The ash was white with a fairly stable and firm ashpile.
Smoke: Volumios smoke, medium heat feel on the tongue and a medium light draw.
3rd third: Keeps the overall flavours, but with a touch darker profile, so it looses most of the sweet notes like cane sugar, dried fruits and some earthy notes.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium to full straight profile.
Result: In my book this is an 88 point cigar.
