"Good to last bite"
Great cigar that I expected to be good because it is from Nick Perdomo but still exceeding expectations...nice ash, pleasent, good flavor without any harshness....

"All around goodness"
The description does not do enough justice for this stick. I would just like to add, great draw, lots of chewy smoke, even burn. I also need to add buttery, sourdough, and slightly musty. Surprised Perdomo dosn't offer this one everywhere. Only had to touch it up once, to be expected with most toros or longer. When you have time to kill, light this one up with a pot of coffee. A+

"Enjoyed this one"
I am new to smoking cigars, having been at it for only a month or two. I have difficulty pulling ot the nuanced flavors of the ones that I have tried, but am getting a bit better at it.
I was able to get a box of the Alabao Toro for a reasonable price, and did so due to the criollo wrapper, which I have enjoyed in the past. Although the experience was quite different from those that I have tried (Kristoff, CAO), I did enjoy this stick.
The burn was a bit eratic, but did not fall apart until the last third, it having canoed to about a half inch differational. At that point, I simply let it go. I was not able to pick out a specific flavor until about the second third, when the cedar became very evident. I then noticed a charred flavor in the final third. Still, this was a very smooth smoke, and I was surprised that it stayed that way until the last inch or two, at which point it bacame to hot to tolerate. I used the cutter, possibly having too large a cut. Perhaps a punch would be the way to go here.
No problems with appearance: oily, with the characteristic criollo appearance. Just a few blemishes with noticable veins. And the stick was not as solid as most I have had - seemed very mushy toward the end. Still, I am glad that I have the box. These wuld be good in rotation with some other daily favorites.

"Plenty of smoke"
I've smoked three so far and shared a couple. The construction and burn were good. There was plenty of smoke with a nice draw. It started out with a notable spice but not overpowering the stick got stronger toward the finish. It's a nice smoke but a little pricy at $94.00 a box.
