Store bought at Brobergs.
Location: This review was made outdoors during a calm afternoon with 13C and 56% air humidity.
Factory: Tabacalera Oliva S.A.
Box: Sold in 25 count boxes.
Availability: Regular Production
Size: 4.5×50, Robusto
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Medium firm and even when lightly squeezed. It gets a bit soft after smoking it halfway.
Cold draw: Cedarwood, white pepper and hay.
1st third: Starts with a earthy dark chocolate, herbal spice (green leafs) and oakwood.
2nd third: Gets a white pepper spice, otherwise keeping the earthy dark chocolate and oakwood notes.
Burn: Burns a bit wonky and hasty, but with a firm and stable whiteish ash.
Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and with a light draw.
3rd third: No changes from previous parts.
Conclusion: A medium to full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. It’s a great cigar to smoke while doing other things, as it doesn’t really change much or bring out any interesting notes.
Duration: 18:35-19:15, 40min.
Result: In my book this is an 87 point cigar.
