Size: 6×49, Piramide

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

Construction: Medium firm and even when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Hay, white pepper and milk chocolate.

1st third: Starts off with a creamy milk chocolate nougat combination, birchwood and a light toasted bread note in the background.

2nd third: Introduction of a light white pepper spice that gently caresses the taste buds while the previous flavours flows on like before.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a flaky but stable white ash.

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

3rd third: In the final part the white pepper steps forward more prominently, while still retaining milk chocolate, nougat and birchwood. I would also be so bold to say there’s a hint of coffee beans in the background.

Duration: 11:20-13:10, 1h 50min.

Conclusion: A medium to full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. A hard cigar to put down, enjoyable out to the fingertips.
It’s a very good variant of the original limited edition it’s based on with a bit more power yet very much a cigar I would buy a box of.

Result: In my book this is an 94 point cigar.
