1st third: Starts with a creamy hazelnut & chocolate spread, salty and bready undertones and a robust oakwood base.
2nd third: Continue with the previous mentioned flavours, but with a hint of caramelized oranges on the aftertaste.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a mild to medium strength profile. Overall a splendid experience, flavours right up my alley, almost didn’t want it to end, wished it was longer! Even though my body would probably not survive longer out in the cold snow.
Result: In my book this is an 92 point cigar
