Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Luxury box of 10 cigars.
Size: 5.5×52, Pyramid (Campanas)
Wrapper: Reddish milk chocolate, oily and smooth with small veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Cedarwood.
1st third: Starts with a cedarwood, walnuts and raw cacao.
2nd third: Keeps the previous flavours in the exakt same order. No pepper spice.
Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and stable whiteish ash.
Smoke: Medium light smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and with a medium light draw.
3rd third: Gets a light hint of cane sugar added, otherwise it keeps the previous flavours consistent.
Duration: 16:25-17:25, 1h.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a mild strength profile. Enjoyable cigar, well balanced for being a new release.
Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
