Cold draw: Light milk chocolate and hay.

1st third: Starts of with a creamy milk chocolate, nutmeg, fruitcake (dried fruits, Christmas dens fruitcake, sweet baking spices and cognac) and oakwood.

2nd third: It transitions more to a roasted chestnuts over an open fire, honey stroopwafel and a light white pepper in the background.

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

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

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Loved the transition of flavours and how well they balanced between each other. I really enjoyed this cigar and I’m happy I have one left in the humidor, but I hope they transition this blend into other projects.

Result: In my book this is an 95 point cigar.
