Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano Maduro
Filler: Nicaraguan Condega, Esteli & Jalapa
Size: 5×54, Robusto.
Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Oakwood, coffee bean and cane sugar.
1st third: Starts with a earthy sweetness, oakwood, black pepper, coffee beans and dark chocolate.
2nd third: Keeps consistent but without the black pepper spice.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable white ash. Had to re-light about 5 times after I passed the first half.
Smoke: Light smoke with a medium heat feel on the tongue and a tight draw.
3rd third: It revert back to how it was in the first part.
Duration: 22:05-23:05, 1h.
Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Not really my type of cigar, but I can certainly see why people like it.
Result: In my book this is an 86 point cigar.
