Looking at the Serie B Gran Toro, it's apparent that this is a cigar with solid construction. The wrapper is dark and oily. There are only a few minor veins here and there, and the overall appearance and texture is quite smooth. The bands on the cigar are superb in their design. The top band near the head is large and displays the God of Fire name with some intricate artwork. Its red outline really calls attention to the cigar. The band beneath it displays the Serie B name in gold, black, and white. The cigar has a little give when pressed, but no true soft spots. Before lighting, there's an aroma of cedar and a chocolaty flavor.

Once lit, the God of Fire Serie B performs without any negative issues to report. The draw is easy, and the ash is long and light gray in color. A good amount of smoke is produced. The burn stays even on its own from beginning to end, requiring no maintenance. No re-lights are needed. This is a very slow burning cigar that takes well over an hour to complete.

When it comes to the flavor of the Serie B Gran Toro, I am impressed. The cigar begins with a complex blend of cedar, sweetness, leather, and chocolate in the first third. The second third is characterized by more leather and chocolate, until a kick of pepper comes in to give the cigar some bite. The final third wraps things up with more pepper and a pleasant fruity flavor. I’d label the overall strength as medium to full-bodied.

Overall, the God of Fire Serie B is a very good cigar. The construction and burn were excellent, and the flavor kept me entertained. This is a good smoke for fans of medium to full-bodied cigars that bring complexity to the table. Packed in boxes of 10, the Serie B Gran Toro is priced at around $24 per single. That’s pretty expensive in my book, which makes this a cigar slated for special occasions, not frequent use.

The God of Fire Serie B Gran Toro earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
