84. Gomez Sanchez Family Leyenda No. 1

Sponsored by Micallef Cigars.

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.
