Now let’s get down to the flavor of the Paradox Toro.  The first third offers plenty of sweet notes and some molasses.  I also detect some mild spice here.  The second third features stronger spice and more sweetness, as well as some wood.  I would call the strength here a shade below full-bodied.  The final third pretty much offers more of the same with notes that are sweet and woody, but coffee also comes into the picture to provide something different.

Was the Trinidad Paradox Toro a solid cigar?  Yes, it was.  Was it a great cigar?  I do not believe so.  It just didn’t have that “wow” aspect to make it stand out.  It is a well-made cigar, but the flavors were not too varied.  It also did not pack as much of a punch as I expected it to.  I’d give the Paradox a shot if you are a fan of the brand or want something with good construction and consistency.  A single sells for around $7, and you can also pick the Toro up in packs of five or boxes of 16.

The Trinidad Paradox Toro earns a rating of 3.25 out of four stars.

Tatuaje Cojonu 2012 Capa Especial

Well, just the other day we took a look at the Tatuaje Cojonu 2012 Reserva in a review and noted that it was released by Pete Johnson and Tatuaje earlier this year.  The Reserva was just one of three Cojonu 2012 releases, so we are covering another today with the Capa Especial.

Just as with the Reserva, the Tatuaje Cojonu 2012 Capa Especial comes in just one format that measures 6 1/2 x 52.  Also like the Reserva, it features a Nicaraguan filler and binder.  The difference between the two comes down to the wrapper.  While the Reserva sports a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, the Capa Especial has one of the Ecuadorian Sumatra variety.  Since it does carry the Cojonu name based off the term Cojonudo which basically translates to “ballsy” in English, it’s no surprise that the Capa Especial is listed as a cigar that is full-bodied in strength.
