Size: 5×33, Seome (Small Panetela)

Wrapper: Light milk chocolate, oily with tiny veins.

Construction: Fairly firm and a bit uneven when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a light wood note, hints of sweet lime zest, light white bread and pinenuts.

2nd third: No changes as it’s a pretty small cigar.

Burn: Burns fast and sharp with a firm and stable white ash.

Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a heat feel on the tongue and a medium light draw.

3rd third: Gets a little kick off white pepper added to the mix.

Duration: 18:55-19:30, 35 min.

Conclusion: A mild to medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. For what it is, it’s a good cigar that performs well during a short amount of time. But me personally would go for a Siglo I to get a broader flavour experience for a little bit more time to fully get satisfied. Also it would be cheaper.

Result: In my book this is an 89 point cigar.
