Size: 5×54(65), Flying Pig (Fat tapered Figurado with a closed foot).

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky smooth texture feel with small veins.

Construction: Fairly firm and even when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Closed foot, so can’t ascertain any flavours as there is no draw.

1st third: Starts with a cedarwood, toasted bread, smooth creamy french butter, floral (white flowers).

2nd third: Orange blossom (slight citrus while still floral), otherwise it keeps the same smoothness.

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

Smoke: Voluminous rich smoke with a medium heat feel with a medium light draw.

3rd third: While still retaining the previous flavours beautifully it still brings some light black pepper spice in the background.

Duration: 14:15-16:15, 2h.

Conclusion: A medium to full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile cigar. Incredibly well balanced smoking experience, buttery soft all the way through.

Result: In my book this is an 93 point cigar.
