Size: 4.9×50, Robusto.

Wrapper: Almond light brown, smooth texture with small veins.

Construction: Fairly firm and even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Dry cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with walnuts, digestive biscuits, white pepper and cedarwood.

2nd third: Flavours keeps pretty on par, a slight bit dryer feeling in the mouth.

Burn: Burns uneven with a fairly firm and stable grayish ash.

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

3rd third: Gets predominantly spicy and dry towards the end, not really to my liking.

Duration: 17:15-18:15, 1h.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. It’s not very exciting of a smoke, but I’m sure someone will enjoy it. Think you’d need to match this with a drink to liven up the mood honestly. Like it’s still a good cigar but it’s just to flat for my liking.

Result: In my book this is an 87 point cigar.
