Moving on, the flavor of the Dunhill Signed Range is complex. It begins with cedar and sweetness right off the bat in the first third. The second third continues with a sweet profile that is soon given a nice dose of nuts and caramel. Some spice is also detected here. The final third is a tasty blend of chocolate, sweetness, and mild spice. This is definitely a medium-bodied cigar.

In the end, I have to say that I enjoyed the Dunhill Signed Range Toro. It provided a solid presentation and complexity in the flavor department. I recommend trying at least a single if you enjoy smooth cigars that are well-made and delicious. Either beginners or experienced smokers can give the Signed Range a try. You can find a single for around $12 each, and the cigar also comes in boxes of 25.  While pricy, you are getting a quality cigar in return, so feel free to splurge a bit for a special occasion.

The Dunhill Signed Range Toro earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

San Cristobal Elegancia Corona

The Dunhill Signed Range Toro isn’t the only highly-rated cigar making up today’s edition of reviews, as the San Cristobal Elegancia has made quite a name for itself as well.  It comes from the folks at Ashton and is handmade by the renowned Garcia family in Nicaragua, so you know it just has to be good.  Instead of being spicy like most of Garcia’s offerings, the Elegancia is said to be creamier and smoother.  In other words, you could say that it lives up to its “Elegancia” moniker by being elegant.  I love smooth cigars that help me relax, so let’s see if the Elegancia makes its way into my regular rotation.

Measuring 5 ½ x 46, the Corona is just one of several formats in the San Cristobal Elegancia line.  Others include the 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 60 Grandioso, 6 x 52 Imperial, 6 1/8 x 52 Pyramid, and the 7 x 50 Churchill.  The cigar features a Nicaraguan filler and binder, and is topped off by an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.  As mentioned in the intro, this is a smoother smoke that’s been placed in the mild to medium-bodied category of strength.
