1st third: Starts with pinewood, sourdough bread, floral sweetness, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and white nougat that version with almonds and candied fruits.

2nd third: While keeping the previous flavours perfectly balanced, there is a smooth creamy milk chocolate rounding out the background and a wonderful aroma fills the room.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable white ash.

Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue with a light draw.

3rd third: In the final part the flavours blend together like a delicious fruit cake, sweetness, spices and that cake breadiness.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. A perfectly balanced flavour experience with a good complexity and construction, just as wonderful as I remember it the first time I enjoyed one blindly a year ago.

Result: In my book this is a 93 point cigar.
