Gary Korb takes one more look at the Holidays with his list of top shelf cigars adorned with fancy white & gold bands. Whether it’s a last minute gift idea or a humidor-worthy primo to ring-in the New Year, you’ll find 12 of them all dressed-up and ready to smoke.
#nowsmoking: Todos Las Dias Toro
Factory: Tabacalera Joya de Nicaragua – Estelí, Nicaragua
Size: 6” x 52
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Sun-grown Criollo
Binder & Filler: Nicaragua (Esteli, Jalapa)
Dominant Flavors: cashew, citrus, earth, pepper, coffee bean, sweet spice
Where it’s at: The dark Criollo wrapper is flawless, oily, and one of the best I’ve ever tasted. Solidly-built with stunning precision, TLD opens with a nutty, cashew-like flavor and pepper. The smoke is uber-creamy with a citrusy tang and light pepper on the finish. The cigar smokes long enough to discover a virtual bacchanal of delicacies. Coffee bean, cinnamon, prime rib (seriously!), and other sweet seasonings convene at the mid-section, then journey forth in a harmonious juxtaposition of sweetness and spice. This cigar should be personally experienced to utterly appreciate its outstanding qualities.
