Gispert Toro cigars present a very flavorful, creamy-smoking cigar, blended with rich-tasting Honduran and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos that are seamlessly handrolled in golden, silky Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers. The smoke is well-balanced and aromatic, with notes of sweet spice on the finish.
Good construction but one dimensional flavor. It taste like freshly rolled hay from the farm. Yuck!
I have basically been a daily cigar smoker for the past 35 years. I usually prefer medium-to-full and double ligero strength smokes, but couldn't resist trying this beautifully wrapped Gispert at a discounted price. It even came with a nice ashtray, so what could go wrong? I knew it would be milder than the others in my humidor and figured that option might be nice occasionally. Draw before lighting: Very creamy wrapper with nutty flavors. 1/3: decent, but faint aroma with little taste to describe. 2/3: same as first third, but with a beautiful even ash. 3/3: immature tobacco flavor with extreme burnt toast taste overtaking anything positive. Conclusion: I still feel like this cigar would be great for the beginner and could mature into something respectable if left alone in the humidor for 12 months.
This cigar keeps flying under the radar. I have been smoking cigars for over 40 years and if you want a mild-med. smoke with plenty of flavor this is the one. I'll compare these anytime to Rocky Patel Connecticut; Finck's Charles the Great; Macanudo or even Montecristo at a fraction of the price.
