Bought at YXTOBAK, Borås, Sweden.
Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Filler: Costa Rica, Nicaragua & Peru
Factory: Tabacalera Pichardo (Nicaragua)
Box: Sold in 20 count boxes.
Availability: Regular Production
Size: 6×46, Corona Gorda
Wrapper: Milk chocolate brown, coarse texture with some small veins.
Construction: Fairly firm and even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Dried fruits.
1st third: Starts with raisin sweetness, cedarwood, cashew nuts, nutmeg and leather.
2nd third: The previous flavours saturates out and notes of pine needles steps forward a bit more.
Burn: Burns a little uneven with a firm and stable white-ish ash.

3rd third: No changes from previous parts.
Duration: 16:55-18:15, 1h 20min
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. It left me wanting a bit more out of it, while still being good it could have been better with a lighter draw or a slight tweak of the blend.
Result: In my book this is a 87 point cigar.
