Honduras

Costa Rican

Nicaragua
Filler:
Nicaragua
Reviewer 1: Anton

Rating: B-

Construction Comments:
Good construction, some minor flaws but very acceptable.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Strong hints of cedar and some pepper. I'm thinking this will be loaded with flavor.
Burn:
Lit fine with my double torch Xikar and stayed lit the entire time.
Drink:
Amstel Light
Smoking Notes:
Very flavorful smoke. Med-Full bodied and leans a bit to full. Initial puffs were very peppery, but it mellowed out a bit with more of the cedar taste and seemed to get a little creamy as it went. It gave off a lot of smoke. I was grilling outside and the wife had to shut the windows because the smell was getting into the house. Burn wasn't perfect, it tunnelled a little bit, but I was able to torch it back to an acceptable burn. I'm pretty sure I have had this one before, but probably not this size.Overall, I'd say this is a very nice cigar. Great flavor but average construction which probably caused the burn issues.
Overall Experience and Rating:
B-

Very nice construction, no flaws, very smooth great roll.

The cigar lit easily and burned really well with a nice gray ash and was a cool even burn all the way through, one relight but no problem.

Red Wine

A strong smooth start, bursting with a great woody flavor and some spice. at the middle the spice mellowed a bit to a cream. this one was really enjoyable to the very end.

I have to give this baby an A, this is what I love about a fine cigar, its like eating a really good steak dinner, satisfying. this will be one of my favorites, cant wait to find out what it is!!
 
Reviewer 3: Sparhawk

Rating: C-

Construction Comments:
This Toro looked great with a nice smooth wrapper and very small veins. The downside is that it felt soft, almost squishy.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
I didn’t noticed anything unique about this one. Average smell, average aroma..well, average.
Burn:
 
Drink:
Water
Smoking Notes:
The first ¼ was unremarkable. No particular scents, notes, tastes. It was kind of bland. It tasted like a cigar, but that’s all. It tasted like tobacco, nothing stood leading me to a specific brand or type. The burn was great, even and smooth. Even with the loose wrap, it gave up a lot of smoke, but the draw was a little loose. Towards the later 1/3, it tended to get a little bitter. The entire length of the smoke, the “cigar” taste got more intense, almost a nicotine-like taste.
Overall Experience and Rating:
This one was uneventful and quite disappointing. Nothing came to mind as I smoked through this one. The loose draw along with the bland uneventful flavor and aroma deemed this one as ‘going through the motions’ with no real enjoyment. My rating is a C-.
 
Reviewer 4: thehat101

Rating: A

Construction Comments:
Pre-light the cigar felt a little softer than I tend to like them. I am scared that this one is a little too humidified. The wrapper has some minor blemishes to include some very apparent black streaks. It is slightly toothy with a red/brown hue. While smoking, the cigar never lost its initial firmness so my pre-light fear never came to fruition. On top of that this turned out to be a very well constructed cigar.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Cut easily with Double Blade Xikar. The pre-light aroma reminded me of a wet fall day. Kind of like damp leaves. (go figure) The pre-light draw was fairly easy and had a bit of a spicy kick.
Burn:
Fairly brittle black grey ash. The burn stayed sharp for the duration of the smoke no touch ups needed.
Drink:
Diet Dr Pepper
Smoking Notes:
The cigar has a nice smooth draw, and produced a perfect (for me) amount of thick dense smoke. The beginning of this cigar was loaded with a very leathery taste as well as some definite earthiness to it. It also had a nice spicy kick on the finish. Also, after about the first 2 inches of this cigar I could tell I should have eaten something first. I would say this is a pretty full bodied smoke. So I am right at the half way point and I have noticed that the body has balanced out nicely. I would still say this is a full bodied cigar but balanced nicely. Towards the middle I started to get mild herbal notes, still with a spicy/peppery finish. The final third of the cigar went back to a strong leathery core with ample pepper on the finish. I nubbed it.
Overall Experience and Rating:
I really enjoyed this cigar. Burn A+, Draw A+ , overall construction A+, The flavor was good but for me didn’t have the complexity to give it an A+, I am thinking more of an A- in this category so it was still very good. This would be a great after Dinner cigar with a nice stiff drink. I give it a solid A.
   
Reviewer 5: Python

Rating: C

Construction Comments:
The wrapper was medium brown in color. The stick was firm with a slight springiness with no soft spots. It had a couple of small veins, a light sheen, and the cap was good. The cut was easy and even with no damage occurring from it. The pre-light draw was perfect.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
The pre-light aroma was woody and earthy. The pre-light flavor was earthy with a hint of saltiness.
Burn:
Even initial light and an even burn throughout.
Drink:
Water
Smoking Notes:
The draw was perfect. The initial light was very musty and earthy with a slight saltiness on the lips. The saltiness went away very quickly and it settled down to a less musty earthy flavor that lasted for about 2 inches. At about the 2 inch mark, I started picking up on some woodiness that lasted through until about the ¾ mark of the stick. At about the ¾ mark, it switched back to an earthy flavor but it was accompanied by a slight sweetness. It had good finish.
Overall Experience and Rating:
This was just an OK cigar for me. It was smooth, had good tobacco, a good burn, and good construction. Maybe if I had smoked it at a different time or situation it would have been better, but based off of the one that I just had, it just didn’t do anything for me. I found it to be kind of boring, but I could see how some people would really like it. I would smoke another one if it was offered to me, but I wouldn’t buy any.
This cigar was average so I give it a C.
