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.

2nd third: Hints of rye bread and dried fruits added.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with firm and stable white ash.

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

3rd third: No distinct changes from previous parts.

Duration: 17:30-18:30, 1h.

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.
