Location: This review was made outdoors during a sunny afternoon, 11°C.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, silky smooth, oily feel and tiny veins.
Construction: Firm and robust feeling.
Cold draw: Hay.
1st third: Dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate and a familiar toasted or lightly burnt oak wood barrel.
2nd third: More of a medium to light roasted coffee, no chocolate notes but the oak is still lightly burning in the background.
Oh the chocolate re-appears after 2cm into the 2nd third.
The burn: Burns good, firm ash, white and not flaky. Burns a little wonky during the 2nd third but straightens out in the final third.
Smoke: Light smoke and cool to the touch.
3rd third: Keeps the flavours from previous parts, but with the same rich dark chocolate as the beginning.
Conclusion: This is a medium to full bodied cigar. Heavy but not strong. Perfect match would be a cup of black coffee.
Result: In my book this is a 92 point cigar.
