Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth with tiny veins.

Cold draw: Barnyard.

1st third: Starts with a molasses, cacao powder and toasted rye bread.

2nd third: No distinct changes maybe a little maple oakwood in the background, but overall the same flavours, but cacao powder is more prominent.

Burn: Burns a little wonky, but it corrects itself, with a firm and stable white ash. (Sadly I accidentally bonked the ash against my coat and it fell).

Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke, with a cool feeling on the tongue and with a medium draw.

3rd third: Keeps the previous flavours, with a slight anis freshness in the background.

Duration: 11:30-12:20, 50 min.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Overall pleasurable flavours all though they felt at times a bit muted.
This cigar got smoked to the very last nub, in my book that’s a sign of a pleasurable experience worth getting more off.

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