"Don Kiki Brown Label" Toro (6x52)
This caramel colored cigar had a smooth wrapper with no tooth and medium sized veins. The pre lit aroma consisted of peppery tobacco and floraly notes. The ash was light grey in color and stacked very nicely. The burn was nearly razor sharp and never needed any attention. The draw had a perfect amount of resistance, providing good amounts of medium bodied smoke. The first third provided flavors caramel, faint leather and earth notes on the draw with the leather notes continuing into the finish mixing with a semi sweet chocolate note. I did notice very faint pepper notes on the draw but the flavor would instantly fade. The smoothness of this cigar really took me by surprise. This may be due to the aged tobacco in this blend. The second and final third showed no further transitions. The pepper note previously mentioned did ramp up towards the final third however, so did the other wonderfully smooth notes of caramel and coffee as well as leather and earth, making everything blend together beautifully. A great bargain stick and daily smoke in my opinion, if you enjoy the flavors mentioned. Stay Toasting!
