Royal Jamaica Oro Rojo Toro Cigar Review

This 6×52 stick offers a dark brown butter soft wrapper with a red hue, minimal veins, tight seams and a soft tobacco aroma. First light reveals a firm draw, minimal airy smoke with mild-medium flavors of an oily smooth tobacco with a slight bitterness. The first third proves to be similar with just a mild smooth aged tobacco taste with a long oily buttery finish. Burn is good but not perfect, and the draw remains firm. The 2nd third moved to more power and brought an earthy deep caramel but still mild. The finish was very deep oily and long with a touch of bitterness at points. The last third required multiple touchups and a relight, getting very warm by the band point at 1:30 where I stopped.

    Thanks, very belatedly, for the review. A friend gave me one of these, but I have not smoked it yet. I don’t know where they are made, but I gather it is no longer in Jamaica (judging from what I have read). Apparently, these were pretty good cigars back in the old days, but perhaps not so much anymore. Perhaps I’ll “re-gift” this as your description does not particularly appeal to me.
