Filler: Nicaragua & Honduras

Size: 5×50, Robusto

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Fairly firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Hay and cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a black pepper, rich 70% dark chocolate, walnuts and earthy sweetness.

2nd third: Keeps the overall flavour profile, but looses it’s spicy pepper note which was pretty good.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable whiteish ash.

Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: The pepper returns for a spicy ending, better to smoke it slower not to irritate the tongue.

Conclusion: A medium to full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.

Result: In my book this is an 89 point cigar.
