62. Blanco Cigars Cigar Obsession 1st Third (Boxpressed)

Gifted to me by a friend.

Location: This review was made outdoors, during a rainy day. 14°C, but it felt warmer. I only drank water during the review.

Wrapper: Medium brown shade, tiny veins, smooth but not oily.

Construction: Firm but still a little soft to the touch, evenly filled.

Cold draw: Hay, cacao and apples.

1st third: Smooth, medium roasted coffee with a slight bitterness as aftertaste.

2nd third: Pretty smooth still, a little oak wood note and a touch of hazelnut.

The burn: Burns slowly, close to a sharp burn. Ash is firm all through it looks a little flaky. It doesn’t fall when tapped so it’s pretty stable.

Smoke: Light in texture and cool to the touch.

3rd third: Still smooth, no changes in taste.

Conclusion: Medium, smooth smoke, nothing to impressive.

Result: In my book this is a 87 points cigar.
