Size: 5.25×52, Robusto.

Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and smooth with small veins.

Construction: Firm and even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Dried fruits like plums and hay.

1st third: Starts with a whipped cream/chocolate mousse, very creamy rich chocolate note, with a cedarwood spice note in the background.

2nd third: Now we are getting peanuts, dried apricots/plums and that chocolate mousse note lines these flavours nicely, with that faint hint of cedar in the background still.

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

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

3rd third: Keeps the flavours from part 2. No changes.

Duration: 19:20-20:20, 1h.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Interesting smoke, with a good variety of flavours, good complexity and acted accordingly as a great cigar should. This makes me eager to try what else this brand has to offer.

Result: In my book this is an 91 point cigar.
