Gifted by a friend.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Nicaragua Maduro
Binder: Black Syrian, Turkey, St James Parish
Filler: Brazil, Cameroon, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Nicaragua & USA
Size: 5.5×100, Figurado.
Wrapper: Coffee bean, smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: It’s a a little squishy but as evenly fills as it can be.
Cold draw: Cedarwood.
1st third: Starts with a earthy sweetness, medium roasted coffee, 70% dark chocolate and cedarwood.
2nd third: Hints of barnyard, some type of artificial sweetness and the previous flavours but a more dulled out in the background.
Burn: Burns a bit wonky, with a firm and stable white ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: No changes from previous parts.
Duration: 23:05-00:45, 1h 40 min.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Reminds me of a dulled down Acid Kuba Arte 20th Anniversary that I tried last year.
Result: In my book this is an 86 point cigar.
