H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon Toro cigars offer the experienced cigar smoker a full-bodied, complex-tasting blend of rich Dominican, Nicaraguan and Peruvian tobaccos seamlessly handrolled in silky, Grade-1 African Cameroon wrappers for a well-balanced, luxurious and aromatic smoke. Try 5 first!
This cigar burned straight, I had 2 inches of perfect white ash before I knocked it off. The draw was perfect. I smoked it down to where it was about to burn my fingers and it was still perfect. I would call it medium bodied with a nice smooth taste. The trouble with cigars is there are so many choices, I tend to stick to brands I ve smoked all my life, Arturo Fuente in particular. To me this is similar AF Don Carlos, maybe a touch milder. I like ring gauge in the low 50s and about 5-6 inches and Cameroon wrappers, this fits the bill. This cigar is a great value for about 5 bucks. Try some.
I am a new smoker, but I have smoked the Macanudo, Monte White, and Ashton Classic. I have to say this was the best I have smoked so far. Let it rest for a few months in the humi at 65rh. This is a great smoke and my non-smoker friends have loved it too. While we all thought the Ashton and Macanudo were very harsh, we thought it could be that they need more time. Slow burn and smooth flavorful smoke. Looks damn nice too. I never write reviews either but I felt compelled for these.
I have smoked hundreds of 'premium' cigars, and tend to mentally benchmark them all against this Cigar (Vintage Cameroon Toro). This cigar has it all. The presentation, construction, and burn are flawless. What sets it apart is the taste and smell of the cigar. I have smoked a lot of cigars that have flawless construction and burn, but none match the aroma and taste of this cigar.
After 3 years in the humi-closet, my Upmann Vintage Cameroon Toro looked, smoked and tasted fabulous. The balance and depth of flavor was masterful. I liked this cigar 3 years ago. I loved it today.
