When I try some new cigars for the first time, it takes several "sticks" to decide if I like them and would buy more. I just tried an Edge Toro Corojo based upon the comments of others on this site. While you can talk about construction, appearance, burn, etc., it really all boils down to taste, and within the first five minutes, I told myself, "This one's a keeper!"
This cigar packs a definitive punch. Other senses are numbed by this overwhelming stick. Pre-cut, the cigar looks beautiful - one of the nicest. A very tight cigar, but draws easily. Lights easy and burns evenly, but nuances past this point are overpowered by the strength of the smoke. Definitely not an everyday smoke.
