53. Don Kiki Platinum Label Gran Toro

Sponsored by Don Kiki / Karen Berger.

Location: This review was made indoors.

Wrapper: Darker milk chocolate 50-60, sandy feel with protruding veins.

Construction: Firm even feel.

Cold draw: Hay, Dark chocolate, Almonds.

1st third: Dark rich taste of dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate. A nutty bitterness also appears once you blow out the smoke.

2nd third: It starts to mellow out a little, not so sharp anymore, still nutty and still dark chocolate notes. Sharp burn on the tounge.

The burn: Good firm ash, it’s stable and white, burns pretty quick.

Smoke: Hot to the touch, but voluminous.

3rd third: Still sharp on the tounge for each puff I take. Good flavours overall but that sharp burn on the tounge really bums me out.

Conclusion: Consistent of flavours, not so existing and sadly the tounge burning will drag the score down a notch.

Result: In my book this is a 86 point cigar.
