Tesoro Plumpo

Tesoro Plumpo Cigar

Score: 6.3

By Gary Korb

Appearance: 7
Construction: 6
Burn: 4
Draw: 8
Aroma: 7
Flavor: 6
Final Score: 6.3

A mild to medium body smoke with a woody taste. Burn was poor and uneven requiring several re-lights. But once it got going again, the taste was better than average. Not recommend as an evening smoke, but will do you justice as a “throw-away” everyday cigar.
