I was pleasantly surprised by this cigar. I generally don't buy store brands because of bad experiences, this one was different. A sweet, nutty, slightly spicy flavor. Mellow comes to mind, but it still managed to be very flavorful. I will definitely be buying again. Don't take my word for it try one for yourself. I personally scored this cigar A 94, not bad for A store brand.
Very Smooth, Rich Taste, Great Finish
Like a lot of cigar explorers, looking for that one that will stay in my humidor for a long time. This is the one, taste is awww sommme
Good Cigar, Smooth, Rich, Good Finish
I am a big fan of leaf from Brazil. Something about the way it complements the Nicaraguan fillers. This cigar met and exceeded my expectations in every way. Excellent burn, did not need to be "tended" while I smoked. Sold on the "VSL"
I ordered these just because the wrapper was dark and the price was right for a 5 pack. While the burn wasn't the best, the flavor was excellent. The construction was more than average, the appearance was homily as a hedge fence. No draw issues at all.
The biggest problem I had with this cigar was the burn. I used up all the butane in my lighter (granted it was a little less than half full, but still) trying to get this thing to burn even and stay lit. The wrapper and binder did not want to stay lit, but the filler would burn so deep into the cigar that it would go out. About half way through the cigar, it canoed very badly, and at that point I was out of butane, which was a shame because the flavor was nice. Very mellow tobacco flavor with a hint of roasted coffee (not brewed coffee, but fresh grounds). I'm going to give them some more time in the humidor and see if that helps any.
They buncher and roller did a much better job on this Toro when compared to the Robusto. The burn was good, ash was a medium gray. It is not a complex cigar at all, but has a slight sweet and pepper note to it.
grabbed a test flight to verify the hype. yep, i verified it. burn was off because i couldn't wait for them to stabilize before i tried them. taste was consistant and smooth. loved it. wouldn't pay full price for them because i think cigars are getting a little out of control, but they make the grade for a good smoke.
This is a nice looking cigar, the wrapper being dark red in color. To me it had almost a minty prelight smell. The burn was all over the place and had to be touched up a few times. It felt soft behind the burn line and the ash flowered. Maybe ok for a yard cigar but have your lighter handy.
