Size: 5.75×52, Double Robusto.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Funky, manure.
1st third: Starts with a nutty, light wood, cacao and earthy sweetness.

Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue with a light draw.
3rd third: No distinct changes from previous parts.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. If we compare this one with the one I smoked in 2019, that was a younger and newer release, this one wasn’t that amazing as the other one was. So they must have changed the blend other than just the bands.
Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
