ratings and scores


One thing is obvious: this is one good looking cigar. The cigar itself has an attractive reddish tint. The wrapper has an oily sheen, and a few veins run throughout the cigar's exterior. The box-pressed shape adds a nice touch. Speaking of touch, the cigar feels very firm and well-packed. Quesada certainly spared no expense when it came to decorating this stick, as they chose to use three decorative bands that have elegant gold, silver, and black color schemes. The band at the foot of the cigar displays the 35th Anniversary name in large font. The band near the head shows the Quesada name and logo. The band right beneath it has Serie Limitada printed on it. Needless to say, from the bands alone, this is a cigar that will gain some wandering eyes in your direction. Prior to lighting, there is a chocolate scent and cold taste present.

They say that you should not judge a book by its cover, and that saying applies to the 35th Anniversary, unfortunately. The cigar's burn leaves a lot to be desired, as it is uneven and requires touch-ups. It also tends to die out, so be prepared to have your lighter handy to resurrect it from the dead. On the other hand, it did produce solid white ash. The draw was satisfactory as well.

Luckily, the flavors of the Serie Limitada 35th Anniversary are better than its burn. A dark chocolate flavor kicks things off, and it is accompanied by some rich coffee. Leather seems to be present, and eventually a spicy pepper makes an appearance. There is even a hint of nuts too. There is nothing very powerful when it comes to the cigar's flavor, and it does seem to fall into the medium-bodied category.

The burn issues of the 35th Anniversary Toro make it hard to recommend as a purchase. The amount of work it took to touch-up and re-light the cigar overshadowed its tasty selection of flavors. It's a shame that its performance did not match up to its appearance, as just looking at it was quite enticing. Seeing how it is such a limited edition, one would expect a high price. A single goes for around $12 each. It also comes in boxes of 20 and packs of 5. Considering the burn issues, such a price tag is not worth paying.

The Quesada Serie Limitada 35th Anniversary Toro receives a less than desirable grade of 2 out of 4 stars.

Stay tuned for more reviews, and keep those lighters busy!
