537. La Unica Primeros No. 400 Natural

Gifted by a friend.

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

Wrapper: Connecticut Shade
Binder: Dominican Republic Cuban Seed
Filler: Dominican Republic Cuban Seed
Factory: Tabacalera Arturo Fuente

Size: 4.5×50, Petit Robusto.

Wrapper: Nutty, oily and smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Fairly firm when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Hay, cedarwood and hay.

1st third: Starts with a walnut, medium roasted coffee and earthy sweetness.

2nd third: Gets tastes like watered down coffee, bitterness and cedarwood.

Burn: Burns hasty, but sharp with a firm and stable white ash.

Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a heat feel on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: Keeps its previous parts flavours.

Duration: 21:30-22:10, 40 min.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Overall construction and smokeability was good, but it was a bit lacking in enjoyable flavours to get higher score. It’s a go out with the dog type of cigar.

Result: In my book this is an 87 point cigar.
