Wrapper: Milk chocolate, smooth texture with tiny veins.

Construction: Fairly firm and even when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Hay, cedarwood and pine nuts.

1st third: Starts with a creamy milk chocolate, hazelnut spread, oakwood, savoury and toasted white bread.

2nd third: Overall it keeps the same smooth flavours but with a sprinkle of white pepper and elevated oakwood note.

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

Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a medium heat feel on the tongue with a light draw.

3rd third: Keeping the spice from the second part while keeping the flavours consistent until the very end.

Duration: 18:05-18:55, 50 min.

Conclusion: A medium to full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile, definitely a more complex blend than the White Series and compliments the core line perfectly. A new favourite blend from Cavalier with exceptions from the limited assortment.

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