Oliva Baptiste Toro cigars present an outstanding Oliva-crafted blend in a wide calibre shape. Diverse Nicaraguan long fillers seamlessly rolled in a gorgeous Ecuadorian Habano wrapper meld for a full-flavored smoke teeming with well-balanced flavors of aged cedar, sweet tobacco, spice, black coffee and a nip of pepper. Ideal for pairing with Rye, Bourbon, a 12-year Single Malt, or Tawny Port, the flavors come through in spades, and are equally satisfying with espresso or cappuccino. But tasting is believing; so, add some Baptiste Toro cigars to your cart, and start enjoying this marvelous selection on a regular basis.
I tried a 5 packs of these and was pleasantly surprised. This has become my go to cigar, it checks all the boxes. I just ordered 2 more boxes of these, they will make my 8th & 9th boxes. Try a 5 pack and judge for yourself.
Okay, in all fairness, I knew this was a house brand when I bought a 10-pack. Wasn t expecting much but ten sticks for twenty-five bucks is a good deal and Oliva is a name I m very fond of. This cigar, like a few of the Famous house brands, really surprised me and I should have learned my lesson by now. The Baptiste is a keeper that I ll come back to in the future. I m so glad I have nine left. I love the oval press and the flavors are a nice medium strength of pepper and cream. And I love that the band has the B in a circle in keeping with the theme of Series G, O, and V. Highly recommended, and I d sure see myself buying a box sometime.
This cigar is one of the biggest values for a full bodied smoke. It has a wonderful rich aroma as well as a deep flavor with a good amount of spice. After smoking a few i actually prefer the Baptiste over the Series V. I enjoy a good full body cigar and this does not disappoint. The construction is spot on, and there are some noticeable transitions, surprisingly for a cigar in this price range. It is a regular in rotation for my weekend patio sessions.
