1st third: Starts with a spry green herbs and spices note, digestive biscuits and sandalwood.

2nd third: Hints of dried citrus, anis and marzipan hints in the background added to the mix.

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

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

3rd third: Keeps the same from previous parts. Fairly smooth but with a bit of spice in the background, nothing to intrusive though.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. For being a Connecticut blend it’s a bit more flavourful and brings a spice.

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