Wrapper: Milk chocolate, slight rough feel with small veins.

Construction: Fairly firm and even when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Light cedarwood and natural peanuts.

1st third: Starts with a creamy milk chocolate mousse, unsalted natural peanuts, cedarwood  and brioche buns.

2nd third: While retaining previous flavours it’s not adding anything new. All the flavours have mellowed out and are very enjoyable at the point.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm but unstable white-gray-ish ash.

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

3rd third: The brioche bready note turns to a shortbread biscuit, otherwise it keeps the same from start to finish.

Duration:  20:35-21:55, 1h 20min.

Conclusion: A light to medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Overall a enjoyable experience that was enjoyable from start to finish, just wished the construction and the ash held up a bit better.

Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
