This cigar has an attractive dark-brown wrapper. The smoke is rich with complex layers of leather and earth with substantial wood and spice notes on the finish.

Streaky and rustic in appearance, this leathery, earthy cigar also has some bitter qualities. There’s a slight dryness on the finish.

This dark, pressed toro smoked beautifully. It's aromatic and full-bodied with complex flavors of leather and wood. The finish is creamy and lightly spicy.

Dark and box pressed, with an oily wrapper. The burn on this cigar is slightly uneven. The flavor is charry and cedary, with a hint of licorice, and it seems a bit muted. Medium bodied.
