Gifted by a friend.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Mexican San Andrés
Size: 6×52, Toro.
Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Hay.
1st third: Starts with a 70% dark chocolate, dark rich coffee, earthy sweetness and a mahogany wood.
2nd third: The flavours combined resembles a chocolate mousse or a pudding, rich in taste.
Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and a fairly stable whiteish ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: Gets a slight spicy black pepper note, otherwise it keeps the previous flavours.
Duration: 13:50-15:10, 1h 20min.
Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Despite the name, the cigar really blew the expectations out of the water. If this cigar becomes more easily available I think this could sell really well.
Result: In my book this is an 92 point cigar.
