Η σειρά 107 σηματοδοτεί 107 χρόνια δημιουργίας χειροποίητων πούρων
Ένα χαρμάνι με μεσαίο προς γεμάτο σώμα που γίνεται με wraper ( φύλλα περιτυλίγματος ) από το Εκουαδόρ, με καπνά παλαίωσης εώς και 6 ετών και με binder από την Δομινικανή Δημοκρατία. Προσφέρει πλούσια και γεμάτη γεύση στο κάπνισμα.
Appearance and Construction: The first thing you notice is how big the Gran 107 looks. It literally dwarfs every other cigar. The Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper is glistening with oils and surprisingly for its size there isn’t and over abundant of veins. Sure they exist but they are not as prevelent as one would expect. There is some tooth present, and there is weight to this cigar as well. Under the finger test there are a few small soft spots but they shouldn’t cause any major issues. The cigar looks good, and it definitely calls your attention to the cigar.
Flavor & Notes : As I light the cigar the first thing I notice is this cigar has some more strength to it then the previous vitolas. As we smoke the first third the cigar serves up notes of wood, nuts and spices. As we progress down the first third the wood notes begin to take on a smokiness and the nutty notes begin to strengthen. As we cross into the second third a sweetness develops reminding me a bit of wine with continued nuts as the wood begins to take a back seat. As we approach the final third the nuts remain the dominant note, with charred wood and Dominican spice.
Smoking Characteristics: As is with most cigar with a larger ring the ash holds strong The medium to dark ash was solid with no flake. The burn was a little bit jagged but I never needed to touch up the cigar. draw offered a touch more resistance then comfortable with.
Conclusion: I wasn’t sure if I would like the size, but it was better then I expected it to me. Keep in mind I am very fussy when it comes to large ring cigars. Those who do enjoy the size should be happy, and for those who wish the 107 was a little bit stronger this might be the stick to go with. For me I will continue to gravitate toward the corona.
