Review Notes: Unlike a lot of things in life these are very dependable. The toro is my favorite. From the dark oily wrapper to the medium+ body, to the firm box press. to the tasty maduro flavor, this cigar does not disappoint and the price is right.

Review Notes: Close to 14 months ago I reviewed this smoke and it was pretty good. Like a previous reviewer noted, smoke these slow. (Thanks for the advice.) You can ignore that and get a buzz but you will miss out on the nuances and subtle flavors. It opens with a lemony, vanilla, creamy taste and develops into a true maduro from there. Taking your time, you will get cocoa, cream, vanilla and citrus as you go. I'm enjoying it on an empty stomach with coffee and it's delicious. Moving into the middle you get dark toast, coffee and more of the good maduro tobacco flavor. (Even tastes like breakfast.) It's complex, I don't use that word often but it fits here. The ash does grow some wings and you'll probably have to torch it a few times, especially if it has less than 6 months in the box. A small price to pay. Can't wait to see what it's like next year.

Review Notes: I reviewed a toro 2nd and the super toro but not a real deal 1st until now. I have the wonderful problem of having so many cigars I just plain forget some of them. Looking for a maduro I happened across this aged jewel. Dark and oily with a flat rectangular box press. Nice straight burn, firm draw and a silver/grey ash that held on for 1 1/2" before I dusted it. I can see why this smoke got less than stellar reviews in some cases because this one needs age to reach it's peak. One of the best medium priced cigars out there if you have the patience.

Review Notes: I had never heard of this one but, I bought 2 bundles on special. A big sucker, ala the Cameroon Legend Gorilla, it has a medium bodied, straight forward maduro flavor and a loose draw. Aging the rest cause I know they have the potential to be very good.

Review Notes: I bought this cigar in a 2nds bundle at auction two years ago. Last night I was reading some reviews, saw the ones for ITSFTM and said hey I need to dig these out and try one. Can't rate the construction and burn too high but the quality maduro delivers coffee, vanilla, honey and strength. It actually mellows and becomes more flavorful in the 2nd half.
