76. 1502 Blue Sapphire Toro Gordo

Gifted by Peter Gaudenzi, 1502 Cigars new European Market Director.

Location: This review was made outdoors during an partially cloudy but still warm afternoon with 19°C.

Wrapper: Darker but still a light brown shine to it, oily and smooth. A little bumpy veins.

Construction: Firm even feel.

Cold draw: Hay and a touch of something sweet like caramel.

1st third: A round creamy caramel sweetness, with a toasted bread and sandalwood after taste.

2nd third: Taste keeps the same as previous part.

The burn: Not completely sharp but not far off. White ash, firm and stable when lightly tapped.

Smoke: Light smoke, cool to the touch.

3rd third: A little lighter on the flavours than past 2 parts.

Conclusion: Positive surprise, not to strong, more like a medium to full body.

Result: In my book this is a 89 point cigar.
