Bespoke Cabinet Selection Rosetta - Cigar Review

Bespoke Cabinet Selection Rosetta 446 Figurado
NOTES:
Burns straight 'nuff, coolly and calmly-so. Pack softens as smoke progresses, but draw stays a loose-medium tension and seams hold fast. Excellent smoky-smoke out-put. Quite nub-able. Ash drops fairly freely.

Smooth with a bissel tingle more than velvety, brightly-so. Surprisingly coarse through the nose. All told slight-side of -moderately piquant, rises to a moderate+ crescendo. Finish has nice malty legs, in a subtle way. Complex but not to the point of distraction. Could use a greater nuance or depth a' note. Transitions simply from sweet-spiced to spicy-sweet, never loosing balance. Rich in a delicate manner.

The Bespoke Cabinet Selection ….. Launched in 2016 these long filler cigars are blended for Bespoke Cigars by Hendrick Kelner Junior. In the early 1900s it became fashionable amongst the British upper classes to order unbanded “Bespoke” cigars in plain, square cedar wood boxes. On arrival in London these boxes would be slotted into custom made decorative cabinets.
The Rosetta cigar was born during a most interesting conversation I had with a certain Martin Brix Nelson, of Kind Cigars , whilst driving through Sweden together. What would be the perfect cigar addition to Swedish coffee shops … and what would be it’s name ? … the Rosetta was born. I do hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
This beautiful little “coned” cigar is dominated by it’s 11 year aged Bonao binder leaf. It is mild-medium in strength delivering sweet notes. It is the first of the Bespoke Cabinet selection line.
