158. H. Upmann Sir Winston Gran Reserva Cosecha 2011
Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.
Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky smooth wrapper with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel.
Cold draw: Light pencil wood notes and a nutty hint in the background.
1st third: Starts of with a hazelnutiness and a dry pencil wood finish.
2nd third: There is a slight hint of cedar wood, that slight spicy wood note. The previous notes from part 1 is still there but with a smoother feel.
The burn: Burns steady and sharp with a white-ish flaky ash.
Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a cool feeling on the tounge.
3rd third: The flavours gets a little bit more intense, medium roasted coffee with a hint of cacao and the pencil wood.
Conclusion: This cigar was just what I needed, it made me very relaxed. Medium bodied cigar with a medium strength overall. Perfect for a early evening starter, as it eases you in to a great evening.
Result: In my book this is an 95 point cigar.
