Store bought at Brobergs Tobakshandel.
Location: This review was made outdoors during a windy afternoon with 22C and 59% humidity in the air.
Wrapper: Ecuador (2015)
Binder: Indonesia (2013)
Filler: Nicaragua & Colombia
Box: Sold in 20 count boxes.
Availability: Regular Production.
Size: 5×50, Robusto.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, fairly oily and smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Fairly firm and even when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Dry hay.
1st third: Starts off with rye bread, crushed hazelnuts, and a teny tiny bit of cinnamon in the background.
2nd third: Gets a little bittersweet note on the tongue I can’t really pinpoint, but it’s not unpleasant.
Burn: Burns a little wonky and hasty but with a firm and stable whiteish ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a medium heat feel on the tongue and with a light draw.
3rd third: Hint of medium roasted coffee while still keeping the crushed hazelnuts and tiny hint of cinnamon in the background.
Duration: 17:35-18:10, 35min.
Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. For what it is, it’s a really enjoyable cigar, great complexity and keeps on going well until the end.
Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.

I live in Japan and smoke mainly Cubans. We only have access to the 4X40 little guy here, and it is a very good cigar. If anyone has infromation for me to get the robusto here please let me know. Pete
