La Antiguedad Toro Gordo
The Toro Gordo is the thickest cigar in the La Antiguedad line and the only 60 ring gauge smoke on this year’s Top 25 list. The Garcia family—no strangers to our Top 25, with two Cigars of the Year—packed this girthy Gordo with a ton of tasty tobacco and pressed it into a blocky shape that resembles a chocolate bar. It’s sweet and toasty, redolent of raisins and toffee with a foundation of crushed walnuts that resonates well onto the finish.
If you’re a fan of thick cigars, then this is tailor-made for you. If you’re a die-hard traditionalist who scoffs at heavy ring gauges, then the Toro Gordo is a compelling reason for you to broaden your horizons and take that step into the weighty world of hefty smokes.
