Gifted by Bob de Goede owner of Xhaxhi Bobi Cigars.
Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Dominican Republic
Binder: Dominican Republic
Origin: Dominican Republic
Factory: Tabacalera Torres & Garcia (Dominican Republic)
Box: Sold in 10 count boxes.
Availability: Limited Production.
Size: 7×38, Lancero.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate brown, silky smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Medium firm with some uneven spots when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Light wood note.
1st third: Starts with a rich cedarwood, fresh walnuts and citrus rinds.
2nd third: Gets a pepper kick to the second part with those citrus notes presenting them more clearly.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable white-ish ash. But it went out in the beginning.
Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a medium heat feel on the tongue with a medium draw.
3rd third: Gets much spicier pepper-wise. Went out once again.
Duration: 22:20-23:45, 1h 15 min.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a full strength profile. It certainly was a refreshing new experiences, if only it would have stayed lit without going out it might have been a bit better.
Result: In my book this is an 88 point cigar.
