The cigar I am smoking is made approx. 1950s – 70y old cigar. Not much information about that brand, but the majority of the cigars made in Germany back in that time are using Indonesian and Brazilian tobacco, considering that is not dark maduro the tobacco used is Indonesian.
Appearance: Rating: ★★★★
Very interesting look, almost square perfecto, I believe from the long aging in the box, very beautiful red band, have few slight cracks, but nothing major.
Initial cut was probably too high and there was draw issues, but once I cut little bit low everything become smooth, perfect burn line and construction at all
Cold draws taste like dry celery and grain.
Open with notes of grain and grass and typical for those old cigars with a solid amount of pepper.
Second continue the same way, but the cigar feels heavy, not increasing the pepper and spiciness just feel more strong.
Finish with quite bold dry wood flavour.
For a 70y old vintage cigar to put value its impossible, the fact it’s still smokable is enough.
Amazing experience to smoke vintage cigars like that, construction perfect, draw and burn too.
Only missing was a lot of flavours, which is completely understandable.
