I love the length of the 1502 Black Gold Toro and its neatly done box-pressed shape.  The cigar has a bit of give to it when pressed, and its dark wrapper is oily and toothy.  An attractive band near the head displays the 1502 Black Gold moniker as well as the company logo.  The gold and black colors of the band are classy and look great next to the dark wrapper.  Before lighting, there’s a scent of mild tobacco, while the cold taste is spicy.

The Black Gold Toro lights with ease and provides a great draw and plenty of smoke.  The burn stays straight from beginning to end without the need for touch-ups.  Only one re-light is needed, but that’s mostly my fault for letting the cigar rest too long as I got distracted.  The gray ash is solid, and smoking time is around 75 minutes total.

I know that the Black Gold Toro is advertised as strong, and it definitely packs a punch, but the cigar is flavorful too.  It starts out with pepper and earth in the first third.  The second third continues with pepper and adds wood and chocolate.  The final third finishes with an interesting blend of sweetness, pepper, and nuts.

The 1502 brand may be new to me, but I’ll definitely look to try more of its selections, as the Black Gold Toro was a superb cigar.  It impressed in terms of appearance and construction, and I really enjoyed its complexity and strength.  I would not recommend it to beginners due to strength, but experienced smokers who love Nicaraguan tobacco should definitely give the Black Gold Toro a try.  You can find it in boxes of nine or 20, with a single costing around $8 on sale.

The 1502 Black Gold Toro earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
