Okay so I'm not a sophisticated aficionado. I'm not able to tell you that the Gispert Toro is exceptionally flavorful, with a hint of spice and a taste of old sweat socks. But as the old cliché goes, I do know what I like, and this cigar is definitely one of them. For me the six characteristics of a great cigar all boiled down equal this. Does it taste good, draw well, burn evenly, and when it's burned so far down it's singing the band, you wish it was about two inches longer? Looks like I got a winner.
I had high expectations for these cigars. They looked great when they arrived and I was excited to try them. My first cigar was very tasteless. The second burned too hot and tasted like ash. The third cigar tasted so bad I threw out over half of the stick. The last two cigars were a tough draw and didn't have a good taste to them.
First time I've had these, and was very surprised. I felt that they were a good looking cigar, with even burn, and great draw. I tend to like a mild cigar, and there are just what I was lookig for. I have no trouble keeping these around.0 0
I have smoked these regularly for the last year, I try different one but always come back to these as they are smooth and mild , which is what I like in an everyday cigar0 0
Up there with Davidoff IMO. Much better than Monties. Closest thing to a budget Romeo y Juliet Vintage I've been able to find.0 0
Very good for $2 per cigar.0 1
What a fine cigar ! The local shop owners never heard of them until I gave them each one to smoke. Boy ,they were ordering them A.S.A.P. I have turned 3 local shop owners onto them and they love them ,and cannot keep them in stock ! What a fine cigar ,and for the price you CANNOT go wrong!0 0
No matter how you say it--I give it the French manner, monsieur--this is one great cigar. Mild-medium body with plenty of smoke & flavor. Very fine wrapper and top drawer filler leaves. Not real complex but just one hellava smoke.0 0
This truly a great cigar. Splendid construction, excellent aroma, beautiful wrapper. Mild-medium in body with a not-overpowering flavor for a Honduran. Frankly the aroma is rather subtle. My favorite size is the Robusto 5 x54 . !Muy excelente!0 0
Great Smoke, No BS. I just received a 5 pack sampler of these, last week. I went with my wife to the casino last night. I don?t especially like to gamble, but it gives me a chance to smoke a few stogies indoors, so I smoked 3 of these. This is a really nice cigar, and I highly recommend them to people that like a smooth mild buttery tasting cigar, like Davidoff or Romeo & Julieta Reserva Real. I personally think there construction and taste is superior to both of the other cigars I mentioned. It does have a softer construction, and is wrapped with a tender satin smooth wrapper. Personally I love the way it feels in my mouth, but if you're a chomper, and find it difficult to adjust to softer cigars without chewing them to pieces, this probably isn't a smoke for you.0 0
This is one of the most incredible finds I've made in 10 years of cigar smoking. In my top 5 cigars and the price makes it a " No Brainer ". A must try cigar for everyone0 0
What a pleasant smoke! The draw and burn were very consistent and the ash hung on for about 3 inches. I normally prefer Maduro's but this is a nice alternative. Flavorful and smooth almost to the nub but I almost burned my fingers 'cause I didn't want it to be over. I had a Vintage (99) Victory Old Horizontal barleywine with it and it was a great pair. Gonna have to get more of these for the reasonable price.0 0
