Wrapper: Ecuadorian Centro Fino Sungrown
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic
Factory: Tabacalera Arturo Fuente

Size: 6.25×52, Piramid.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, smooth with small protruding veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Oriental spices and cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a nutty, earthy and ginger spice note followed by dark chocolate.

2nd third: No changes from part one, just perfectly levelled.

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

Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a medium cool feeling on the tongue and a medium light draw.

3rd third: Well balanced from start to finish.

Duration: 22:50-00:10, 1h 20min.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. It has the classic Cuban flavours in a well constructed body with a light draw unlike most Cubans.

Result: In my book this is an 91 point cigar.
