Size: 5×52, Boxpressed Robusto

Wrapper: Dark chocolate brown, oily and smooth with small protruding veins.

Construction: Firm and even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Oakwood and dried fruits.

1st third: Starts with cedarwood, brazil nuts, all spice and some sweet bread notes.

2nd third: Fairly unchanged with a black pepper note added.

Burn: Burns uneven with a firm and stable grayish ash. Had to touch up it several times as it didn’t correct itself.

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

3rd third: Gets a darker note of cacao and oakwood predominantly.

Duration: 16:45-17:50, 1h 5min.

Conclusion: Medium bodied cigar with a medium to full strength profile. It’s not my favorit in the series, but still enjoyable sad it burned so uneven and had to be manually corrected as it had troubles correcting itself. The flavours kept a good balance with a crescendo in the final part, but at no point did it feel inconvenient.

Result: In my book this is an 88 point cigar.
