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.
