Showed a very promising whiff of earth and barnyard from the wrapper as well as nicely cured tobacco on the cold draw. Upon lighting, this was amazingly smooth, exhibiting notes of nuts, leather, and cocoa. Draw was just a tad too tight through a V-cut. About half an inch in dark coffee notes started creeping in and taking over. It then became a little too smooth on the second third, with underwhelming, nondescript flavors. The bitter coffee notes reemerged on the last third, and then the stick got smooth again at the nub. Burned cool till the very end, for about 90 minutes. 91-92 points
I found this beauty in a cigar shop in Scottsdale arizona! I can't believe how delicious this little piece of heaven delivers. This one is for the long ash club! Exccellent structure, complex notes, and lovely price. I could not believe the cost for this cigar meets all expectation.
One of the best non cuban cigars I've smoked.
I'm in complete agreement with all of the other reviews on this one. IMO, may be the best overall value of any cigar on the market.
A very smooth and nice smoke. The draw is great. It has a great smell.
Im on about my 6th box of these. number one rated cigar in 2008 and they still are made very well and are consistantly great smokes for the price.In addition they are one of the few cigars I get complements on as I smoke outside in public.Even non cigar smokers have commented on how good they smell and that is rare.get a box you will not be disappointed
This is an excellent cigar!!!! It was rated one of the best in 2008. It is still very consistent and as good as any 20.00 cigar you can find! It is my favorite because of the value and taste!
I smoked this cigar for the first time and it burned all the way past the label without breaking ash!!!Prominent roasted nut and coffee incredibly smooth throughout...Better than cigars I've had twice its price...Don't miss this one!
Received the Casa Magna Colorado Gran Toro as part of the cigar club offering for April. Being already a lover of Nicaraguan cigars, I eagerly fired this one up for an evening's fare. The expected earthy, spicy, black-peppered tones are all here. This big stick gives out great clouds of chewy smoke in a smooth medium to full body format. A little pricier than some, it ranks right up with the best Nic puros for satisfying taste. Construction also is excellent. I'd like to try some more conventional sizes in this blend (corona, robusto, churchill) because this Gran Toro is HUGE, at least ninety minutes, more time than I can afford, even for a great smoke.
Great cigar. Love the sweet flavor. Nice aroma. No after taste. Great burn time 30 to 40 minutes.
