98. Cohiba Talisman Limitada Edition 2017 (secret batch)

Gifted by William Kilander, President of the Swedish Cigar Federation.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, silky smooth with slightly protruding veins.

Construction: Firm even feel.

Cold draw: Hay and a touch of oak wood.

1st third: Creamy hot chocolate, a touch of toasted cacao and coffee beans.

2nd third: Keeps a steady creamy chocolate note all trough the second part.

The burn: Sharp burn, white-ish ash firm and stable.

Smoke: Cool to the touch, not to voluminous but white smoke.

3rd third: Buttery feel in the roof of the mouth, still as creamy as before.
The very last bit turns a little sharp as the heat comes closer, but not as bitter as some Cubans can be.

Conclusion: This is a smooth and mild cigar, and fits perfectly in the Cohiba line.
Sadly not a favourite of mine but still very good.

Result: In my book this is a 88 point cigar.
