499. CAO Session Garage

Store bought at Brobergs.

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

Wrapper: USA Connecticut Broadleaf
Binder: Dominican Republic Vega Especial
Filler: Dominican Republic Piloto Cubano & Nicaragua Esteli

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.

Duration: 14:55-16:55, 2h.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium to full straight profile.

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