Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.
Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Very dark brown, rough texture, but still tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel.
Cold draw: A tough draw and a taste of hay.
1st third: Taste a bit like watered down black coffee. There is also a hint of salvia/sage.
2nd third: After some time I got to part 2. No changes in taste but I feel a high nicotine presents, not something I’m fond of.
The burn: Burns very slow and fairly sharp. With white-ish ash.
Smoke: Awful draw, light smoke but still with a cool feeling.
3rd third: Absolutely no changes in taste.
Conclusion: Very disappointing, I’m no giver upper but this is the slowest burning cigar I have ever smoked. Unfortunately this will bring down the score for me.
Result: In my book this is a 84 point cigar.
