Factory: Tabaco Segovia
Box: Sold in 25 count boxes.
Availability: Limited Production (Europe Exclusive)
Size: 6×50, Piramide.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, sandy feel, with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Light wood notes.
1st third: Starts with a light wood note, mineral rich earth, creamy milk chocolate, hazelnuts and a light pepper note in the background.
2nd third: Flavourwise it keeps the same, but with the smooth and creamy mouthfeel of the smoke.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable gray ash.
Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and with a light draw.
3rd third: No changes at all, but it kept consistent.
Duration: 13:30-15:10, 1h 40 min.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. For being 16 years old it still retained a lot of flavours. I think these can be aged for even longer without loosing to much. This is also a good sign if you like Cumpay and want to age them for a long time, mind you will loose a bit of the strength.
Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
