Cuba Libre One Toro Cigar Review

This 6×52 cigar features a dark chocolate slightly mottled wrapper with an even spongy give, tight seams, small veins, triple cap, very slight tooth, nice oil sheen and a rich coffee and barnyard aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plenty of thick very chewy smoke, with medium bodied flavors of an oily, rich smooth tobacco and a long finish. The first third has a thick meaty and tobacco taste with cinnamon kicking in especially on the finish. It has a sweet oily feel and bit of spice kick, leaving a deep smooth mouthfeel. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point it needed a small touchup to correct a slanted burn and loose draw, it was fine after that. Flavors shift to a much lighter medium body dropping the sweetness just leaving a more airy smooth tobacco and earth combo with a very heavy finish like taking a shot. Ending at 1:10 the last third dropped the earth for a bit of milk chocolate and oily roast coffe, bringing up the deep feeling on the finish, and adding a bit of strength rush at the end. Thank you very much to Youtube viewer juvethegreat86 for sending this in for review, I really appreciate it!

    Great concise, yet well described review. Looks like I’m gonna have to try these out.

    I just had one of these for the first time. I got it in a sampler pack. It was exactly like you described it Bryan. I wasn’t really digging the deep/warm feeling in the back of my throat for the first third, but that went away (like you experienced) and I really enjoyed the stick the whole way through. I don’t know if I’m the only one who smells the wet cap as I smoke, but this one smelled really good. The only one I like better is the Pinar Del Rio Seleccion Limitada, it is almost better than the smoking experience….I must look like a fool with the cap up to my nose between draws!

    Great work Bryan, I get such enjoyment going back to your older posts as I acquire new (to me) cigars and get a chance to smoke them. Thanks much.

    Just got a 5 pack of the Cuba Libre One toro – on the last 3rd and you hit the nail on the head with your review! I didn’t find the mid-third so bad – otherwise, a home run!

    A good stick for the money ($7.00 for 5-pack on CigarBid.com).

    Thanks Bryan!

    I had one of these last week and I was bit disapointed. The rgular Cuba Libre is one of my favorite sticks I can get for less than $2, but I just wasn’t digging the flavors. In comprison to you reviw I think describing it as like a red hot was pretty similar to what I got.
