La Reloba Seleccion Mexico Toro Cigar Review

This 6.2×52 cigar features a dry slightly toothy firm wrapper with small veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap, very even roll and rich chocolate and wood aroma. First light reveals foot smoke that smells like pot, a perfect draw with tons of rich full bodied smoke giving flavors of a silky smooth dry peppery tobacco with a long finish. The first third goes fairly quickly, dropping most of the pepper but keeping all the other rich flavor and smoothness. Burn and draw are perfect with plentiful rich oily smoke output. 25 minutes in just starting the 2nd third the ash drops off in a solid chunk. Flavors are joined by a almost gritty, dry deep chocolate that almost has an earthy component, mixing very well with the oily smooth tobacco and wood. 55 minutes in starting the last third, flavors remain the same but strength is coming up just a bit giving a slight head rush. Performance is still perfect, dropping the 2nd third in a solid ash. Ending at 1:10 the last bit showed no further changes. Thank you very much to the Hemry brothers, Brian & Brandon for sending this for review!

      Yeah, I have La Reloba Sumatras in my humidor. They have a different band.

    Well, of course it smells like pot, it’s Mexican! lol I’ll have to track some of these down, probably online, since the B&M I got my Sumatra from (which I didn’t particularly like) was overpriced.

    Sitting here in the cold pouring rain in Oregon, with the rain falling sideways so I can’t even think about going out to have a cigar. I was pumped to see Bryan had uploaded a new review, watching is like smoking a cigar by proxy! Thanks again Bryan.

  • LOL Thx for the type-o catch guys – fixed! 🙂

    I’ve smoked a couple of these. Two of the Toros and one robusto. The robusto was packed so tight I could bearly get a draw out of it; pretty much a waste of a cigar. It became bitter from having to pull so hard and had to constantly relight and touch it up.

    The 1st toro I smoked has to still be one of my favorite cigars to date. Perfect construction amazing flavors that were varying slightly from one puff to the next and became super creamy entering the 2nd 3rd. Yes, I do like the flavor of pot :)!

    The second toro I smoked was on par construction wise. The flavors just weren’t there, neither was the creamy texture of the smoke. I have 4 more sitting and I want that 1st toro experience again!

    Can anyone recommend a good amount of time to let these rest?
