Binder: Cuba
Filler: Cuba

Size: 6.1×48, Hermosos No.2 (Grand Corona).

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and fairly smooth with small protruding veins.

Construction: Firm and even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Hay.

1st third: Starts with a cedarwood, black pepper and toasted bread.

2nd third: Keeps a steady flow, no changes in flavours.

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

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

3rd third: Gets a medium roasted coffee note added to the mix, while still retaining the cedarwood, toasted bread and black pepper.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Would have wished for a more exciting flavour experience.
