Store bought at Sweets n Cigars.

Location: This review was made indoors in Sweet Leaf’s lounge.

Wrapper: Cuba
Binder: Cuba
Filler: Cuba
Origin: Cuba

Factory: N/A Cuba
Box: Sold in 25 count boxes.
Release: 2021
Availability: Regular Production

Size: 5.25×51, Robusto (Bohemios)

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily with small veins.

Construction: Fairly firm and even when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Light wood, honey notes and hay.

1st third: Starts with a light butter biscuits and almond note backed by cedarwood and white pepper.

2nd third: Getting clear notes of cinnamon added to the mix.

Burn: Burns a little uneven, with a firm and stable white-ish ash.

Smoke: Light smoke, with a cool feeling on the tongue with a medium type draw.

3rd third: It has turned to a creamy, Swedish cinnamon bun aka not overly sweet, while still retaining the previous mentioned flavours.

Duration: 17:40-18:40, 1h.

Conclusion: A mild to medium bodied cigar with a mild strength profile. I’d say it started pretty mundane, but really came to life half way through. A good rival to Connossieur B but with a little bit more excitement towards the end.

Result: In my book this is an 88 point cigar.
