555. Drew Estate The Egg Maduro Aged 2011

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.
