Casa Magna Oscuro Toro
6 x 52 - Oscuro - Single
Casa Magna Oscuro cigars are the younger brother of Cigar Aficionado's Number One cigar of 2008. Cuban-seed Honduran Oscuro wrappers glisten with oils, and conceal a robust blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran longfillers and Honduran binders. Full-bodied, their peppery character up-front mellows to deliver deep, dark tobacco flavors with subtle complexity, ample sweetness, earthy-leathery notes, and a powerful aroma. An exceptional cigar, to be sure.
Take a moment to savor the prelight aroma. Sweet, and as other reviewers have mentioned, chocolate. I found the cigar surprisingly light bodied given its impecable maduro oscuro wrapper. The flavors were sweet and creamy with hints of chacolate and fruit throughout. I enjoyed it with a slightly sweetened latte and found they paired well.
This cigar is by far, one of the best that I have ever had. The flavor, construction, ash, smotheness, is beautiful. It is a complex smoke that gives out plumes of smoke when enjoying. Try it with a good wine, or a glass of Cognac. You will NEVER be sorry. There is only one drawback, it is hard to get. Thank goodnes for FSS (and they usually have some in stock).
