drewjavapic2 Today is review day, where we will see how two sticks stack up and find out whether or not they are worth your hard earned cash. With that said, let's look at the Drew Estate Java Toro Maduro and the El Rico Habano Maduro Torpedo.

 

 

Drew Estate Java Toro Maduro

The Java line from Drew Estate is the collective work of two men: Jonathan Drew as well as Rocky Patel. The line is not one meant to blow smokers over, as it is meant to provide more of a soothing experience with its infused coffee-themed flavors. Besides its Maduro edition, the Java line also comes in a Latte edition, which features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.

The Drew Estate Java Toro Maduro measures 6 x 50. It also comes in other sizes as well: the 5x42 Corona, the 5x46 Wafe, the 5x58 The 58 Super Toro, and the 5 1/2x50 Robusto. The Toro is composed of a Nicaraguan filler as well as a Nicaraguan binder. Topping it off is a Brazilian Maduro wrapper. The Java Toro is a smoother cigar considered to be medium-bodied.

Undoubtedly, the first thing most will notice when looking at the Java Toro is its box-pressed shape that gives it rigid, almost perfectly square corners. The construction of the cigar is superb. A bit of oil is noticeable on the dark wrapper. There are also some large veins present. A decorative band near the head of the cigar displays the Drew Estate Java name. There is also a band near the foot that says Maduro in large gold font. Both bands are a rich chocolate color accented with gold that are almost camouflaged within the cigars dark wrapper. The cigar has a cold taste similar to hot cocoa. The scent given off is the same as the cold taste. Touching the Java Toro, I can tell that the cigar is on the softer side and not tightly packed.

Once in action, the Java Toro Maduro burns like a charm. The burn is even throughout, and no touching up or re-lighting is necessary. A light-colored long ash is produced, and the draw is good.
