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.
