588. Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Connecticut Toro

Gifted by a friend.

Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua

Size: 6×50, Toro.

Wrapper: Nutty, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Fairly firm and even when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Hay and a slight sweetness.

1st third: Starts with a creamy milk chocolate, whipped cream, toasted bread and sandalwood.

2nd third: There’s a peanut note stepping forward to join the previous flavour notes.

Burn: Burns 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 plain peanuts take a bigger role in the last part, while still keeping a whipped cream smoothness and a cinnamon spice on the tongue.

Duration: 19:30-21:00, 1h 30min.

Conclusion: A mild bodied cigar with a mild strength profile.

Result: In my book this is an 92 point cigar.
