77. Micallef Cigars Herencia Maduro (Boxpressed Torpedo)

Sponsored by Micallef Cigars.

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

Wrapper: Dark brown, rough in texture with veins clearly showing.

Construction: It’s overall firm with very few spots that are a little spongy.

Cold draw: Light draw, well fermented hay.

1st third: Lightly burning wood, like an fireplace, medium roasted coffee, with a touch of leather.
It’s salty and earthy, a slight bitterness on the back sides of the tounge.

2nd third: Gets a little sharp, like cedar, a roughness like a flame roasted beef.

The burn: Steady, white gray-ish ash. A little flaky but keeps steady when lightly tapped.

Smoke: Voluminous, creamy and brings a little heat.

3rd third: A little sting to the front of the tounge, feels like black pepper.

Conclusion: It’s a good complimentary cigar to a cup of coffee, nothing to impressive nor is it boring.

Result: In my book this is a 87 points cigar.
