Cigar Review – Wong Kwong Guocui Cigars – Crown (The Quintessence) (王冠國粹) (National Essence)

Origin : China

Gifted by William Kilander, President of the Swedish Cigar Federation.

Little info about the cigar before we begin, since this is only available in China at the moment it was very hard to find any info on it even the name of it. But what I can find this a collaboration between Anhui Tobacco and Scandinavian Tobacco Group that started back in 2011.
I can't really find any info if all the tobacco is from China or if it's a mix. I'm still searching and will update the review upon getting the info.
Anyhow the cigar was made to commemorate Chinese nation drama - Peking Opera. Qing Emperor Qianlong, "the four emblem classes into Beijing", the integration of various artistic achievements of opera, the birth of Peking Opera.
The band on the cigar represents a classic mask used at the Chinese Opera.

I was very fortunate to crack one box of the awaited Habanos 2017 Limited edition: the Cohiba Talisman.
We have seen many of these cigars on the different social medias even though the launch event is on the 8th of November in London. Hunters and Frankau, the UK distributor of Habanos, got the opportunity to organise the official launch. That said we should all get worried about any Talisman around on the grey markets.
If I decided to write a review about this unofficial release, it is because I am 100% sure about the provenance of the box and we were few from the industry around the table to have the chance to taste it.
