La Campina Toro 5 Pack
La Campiña Toro cigars deliver smooth, refined flavors of spice and nuts in a comfortable 6 x 54 parejo. These medium-bodied premiums are made at Plasencia's Esteli factory using a blend of Esteli Ligero, Jalapa Viso and Honduran Jamastran Seco leaves rolled in silky Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers.
For the most part these were great cigars. BUT there is an inconsistency in strength and flavor. Some had very little flavor and some were VERY harsh.
Ok, These taste a whole lot like , Don Tomas SE, Fonseca F-50, Rocky AMS, but closest to a Perdomo Champagne,but not quite as sweet. These gems are obviously much cheaper. If you are looking for mild-med body solid, tasty smoke you are in the rt section. The ones that I got were GREAT but the tag said that they were Sept 2010. So they obviously had been chillin at famous for a little while. If ya got the time age them for a couple of months and you will realize a truly fantastic bargain. I find myself reaching for it when I'm indecisive, and I've never been let down. I think I might love the Plasencia's. La Floridita Gold , Pai Gow, La Campina I love Em!! I'm not a fan of the fuerte's or stronger blends, just my taste. However if you pleasure tended to run in that direction I'm sure the Plasencias' will have something in the wide selection that will fit your taste. Gosh I wished tellin good stuff got ya some kind of discount. I only buy @ famous and one other. Thanks for being the best. You handled a customer service issue today...no prob thank you for fixxing my issue in 5 min.
My brother and I both tried these, and we thought they were just awful cigars. 2 out of three of the leafs were still green, and the taste was too bitter and underaged. Take my advice and try something like the Casa Torano or any other Connecticut wrapper.
Recently I've had a few very strong cigars ... I like lots of flavor and a strong cigar, but I also like variety ... however the last two were so strong my head was left reeling and stomach almost heaving ... maybe my system is changing ... be that as it may, I chose to try out the La Campina Toro today. I've had it for a few weeks and it's been sitting in my humidor resting since I received the 5 pack I'd ordered. I'm glad I chose that cigar ... after a fairly strenuous day in the woods hunting, I was looking forward to an enjoyable cigar that I could relax with during the drive home ... not one that would assault my senses (some days you do want a cigar that kicks your ... rear-end) ... today was not that day and the La Campina Toro fit the bill ... very relaxing, very enjoyable, all around good smoke ... I like the Toro, thicker ring gauge, good length ... it was just right ... I have to agree with most of the other reviews for this cigar, espec. the one from July 2009 (Milwaukee) ... thumbs up.
