Review Notes: This Achilles toro starts out with pepper on the palate and begins to mellow after the first half inch or so. It gets creamy with leathery undertones for the next couple of inches and then the pepper returns. There is a caramel and bread-like aroma that might be called "Cubanesque." I would mark the Achilles down on just one point: there is a slightly greenish, astringent quality to the tobacco which to my palate indicates some young leaf. It isnít overpowering, but it is present and persistent. Aside from this, excellent construction and fine appearance. With a couple years under their bands these young rebels will make fine gentlemen.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (5) No (6)
