Upmann Amatista 2000

This cigar has a RG of 40 and a length of 140 mm. The wrapper is colorado colored, fine and matt. Not box pressed at all, filled uniformly but rolled very tight (due to this I rolled the cigar between the table plate and my hand to improve the draw a lil bit).

The smell of the cold cigar is very decent and shows hints of tobacco and fresh milled black pepper.

I took my time to light it up very carefully, cutted it and took the first puff... ok, I tried to... haha... Draw was very tight, but it was smokeable (after the half of the cigar it opened a bit more).

Fresh milled black pepper like I recognized in the cold smell was on of the main aromas which came to my palate. Paired with an intensive taste of tar which switched over to coffee after a while (so it matched perfect with my Latte Macchiatto).

The peppery flavors faded away and the second third was a mixture of milk chocolate and oak wood, good balanced and very tasty.

The last third was again a combination of pepper, some (undefined) spiceyness and fresh roasted coffee. On the last inch it got bitter which was for sure due to the tight draw.

Nevertheless this was a really tasty cigar.......
