The Fonseca Toro Grande is a BIG cigar that's equally big in flavor. Rolled to a 56 ring, these mild, creamy, nutty-tasting cigars have a superb balance, easy draw and a head-turning aroma. One of Fonseca's best cigars, well-made with a silky, golden shade wrapper. Yum!
To me, smoking a good premium cigar is like dining on a great stake. You smoke it savoring each draw for its flavor and aroma. Fonseca Grande Toro is my favorite medium/mild smoke for many reasons. It s smooth and creamy from light-up to the time it goes out. It doesn t bite or leave an unpleasant aftertaste that seems to be so common with many other brands. I ve given the Fonseca Toro Grande to friends who aren t regular premium cigar smokers, assuring them of the attributes mentioned above. For younger or intermittent cigar smokers who want to enjoy a cigar on occasion they are, too often, left disappointed because the cigar they chose or were given was too strong, had a sharp bite or a distasteful after taste. I ve been smoking cigars for over 35 years and haven t found anything better to me than the Fonseca Toro Grande. I was hesitant to even write this review because I feel the FTG is one of the best hidden secrets in the cigar industry and, frankly, up until now I didn t want too many people to know, which may cause a shortage, making it harder for me to get them when I want them. However, they are too good not to share with everyone.
I've now smoked the regular Fonsecas and the Series F...I'll stick with the regular Fonsecas, they just have more character. The Fonseca Toro Grande (6X56), although a bit bigger gauge than I normally buy, is an awesome mild smoke, with an alluring aroma that's almost as pleasurable as the smooth creamy taste.
