577. La Gloria Cubana Platinum Edition Regional Paises Bajos 2017

2020-12-08/ ANDREDIAS95

Gifted by a friend.

Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.

Information:
Wrapper: Cuba
Binder: Cuba
Filler: Cuba
Limited to 8000 boxes of 10 cigars (80000 cigars)

Size: 5.5×56, Duke (Robusto Extra).

Wrapper: Nutty/milk chocolate, smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a hazelnut, cedarwood and milk chocolate.

2nd third: Keeps the same as part 1. Well balanced flavours.

Burn: Burns a bit uneven, with a firm and stable white and gray ash.

Smoke: Light smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a medium tight draw.

3rd third: The nutty note is more prominent in the final thrird while still keeping the previous notes in the background.

Duration: 17:45-19:00, 1h 15 min.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.

Result: In my book this is an 89 point cigar.
