Java Mint Toro
Java Mint cigars are a cool new smoking experience with the same chocolate-mocha flavor of the original Java cigars, but lightly infused with a zesty mint flavor, plus essences of mocha and vanilla. Made by Rocky Patel, the cigars have an all-Nicaraguan longfiller and binder core BOX-PRESSED inside a rich-tasting, Brazilian maduro wrapper. The result is a medium-bodied, mint-chocolatey smoke brimming with myriad flavors and aromas. Order some now and taste for yourself.
Absolutely love this cigar. Easy to light and burned perfectly. It is sweet when you first start smoking it, but it fades. There is a nice chocolate flavor mixed with the mint making it very enjoyable. It s not an overpowering or strong artificial flavor, it s subtle and very good. The cigar looked great and is constructed very well. Gave one to the old man and he loved it as well.
This is a top favorite so far. The essence of both chocolate and mint are faint but just enough to compliment the cigar. It would not be what I would refer to as a menthol flavor at all, its just enough to provide the "just right" addition of flavor. Also, they burn quote well and do not get harsh - a big "yes" vote from me on that note.
First, I am a huge fan of the Java. However, smoking the "Java Mint" was somewhat like smoking a menthol cigarette. It didn't have much of a "mint" flavor at all. However, I admit that I may have had a preconceived notion of what the Java Mint would taste like before buying it. I purchased it thinking it would have a slight mint undertone to compliment the the always present cocoa and coffee flavors that are so well balanced in the original Java. Also, I didn't let it rest in my humidor either which may have something to do with it. Overall, the quality of construction, draw and burn were great as usual. Being that I am such a big fan of the Java, I will most likely try one more, but will let it sit a while in the humidor before smoking it.
