Supplied by Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
Aluminium pack of 5 cigars
Size: 5.2×42, Mareva (Petit Corona)
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth with small veins.
Construction: Fairly firm and even when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Hay.
1st third: Starts with a cedarwood, milk chocolate, medium roasted coffee and black pepper.
2nd third: A cashew nut note gets added otherwise it keeps the previous flavours.
Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and stable whiteish ash.
Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a medium light draw.
3rd third: Keeps the same from part 2.
Duration: 20:55-21:30, 35 min.
Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.
Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
