Store bought at Brobergs.
Location: This review was made outdoors during an rainy day, it was 14°C.
Wrapper: Dark chocolate brown, silky smooth finish and tiny veins.
Construction: Firm but still a little squishy feel. It’s evenly filled.
Cold draw: A soft touch of hay nothing to intrusive.
1st third: Oddly enough it’s like a sweet dark chocolate, like a caramel touch. Oak in the overall background of this first part. A well aged wood with a walnut finish it’s dry but still nutty. There is even an salty touch to the lips.
2nd third: Most of the taste notes from part 1 is still there. It’s smooth, a light, very light touch of coffee lurks in the back and there is a “spicy” note like a touch of black pepper or just a raspy feel, similar to when you like a piece of oak wood (if anyone has ever done that).
The burn: Burns fairly quick, not so straight, wonky is the right word for it. The ash well its gray, feels like it’s really trying to become white. Fairly stable ash until you tap the cigar lightly and it falls.
Smoke: Well the smoke is a WOW! factor alone. Very voluminous, rich and creamy in texture and the draw is very light.
3rd third: Keeps fairly the same from previous parts except that I’m getting a little bit more raspy feeling on the tongue. Dark chocolate, a touch of medium roasted espresso, oak wood with a dry rough finish but still overall a smooth experience.
Conclusion: A maduro without the kick instead with a darker and smoother finish, familiar from the regular Winston Churchill series from Davidoff. Very likable experience.
Result: In my book this is an 93 point cigar.
