1st third: Starts with ginger and safron spice, notes of roasted chestnuts, dark chocolate lik 85% and oakwood.

2nd third: The flavours keeps the same but they are more combined together, one additional note of a sweet bun like the dough of a Berliner, without the filling, very smooth.

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

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

3rd third: The only change was an additional note of natural peanuts, it just flows on like a smooth ride along.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. It was enjoyable and pretty complex notes that balanced their way through the smoking experience.

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