La Herencia Cubana CORE Toro Cigar Review

This 6.5×52 box pressed stick features a very dark brown slightly mottled and toothy wrapper with a slick oily feel, even spongy pack, sloppy double cap and rich milk chocolate aroma. First light reveals a great draw with minimal smoke output showing medium bodied flavors of a bright zingy tobacco with a long earth and pepper finish. The first third develops much the same, burning slowly and taking down the core tobacco flavor just a bit. The 2nd third starts off big, bringing body up to medium-full with deep dark earthy tobacco flavors with a bit of sweetness and pepper still lingering through the long full finish. Hitting the 1/2 way point 55 minutes in, flavors lose the deep earth and much of the zing, only showing a bit of pepper through the finish now. Body is back down to medium and there’s just a hint of strength coming in at the end of the 2nd third. Ending at 1:45 the last third continued the same performance and flavor profile but ramped up the strength greatly to a medium-full giving me quite a rush and buzz! Thank you very much to viewer Kris McKinney for providing me this to review!

    Just put one of these down subsequent to your fine review.. I must say.. never got the creamy coco.. or any taste except zippy tobacco.. with alot of body, perfect burn however.. and a real nutt popping full strengh stick.. dizzy at the first third.. with a long sticky finish leaving me no choice but to put it down at the 30 minute mark. I have a couple more I will be sending as entries into the next contest.. but for me..whew.. toooo much.

    Got one of these in a sampler and after this review I am now on the fence about smoking it. I have it so I’m going to at least try it. Never know if your going to like it or not if you don’t try it I guess lol.

    Spot on review. I’ve got a pretty good tolerance for strength, and this thing had me feeling woozy towards the end 🙂 . Plus the burn time is sick. I smoked this same vitola down to about an inch left and got about 2:20 out of it. Very good value for the money.

    Have smoked two of these that I rec’d in A.J. Fernandez samplers from CI. To me it’s overpoweringly earthy with not much else in the way of flavor. Have three more in 3 more sampler packs and I’ll be interested in seeing if a bit more acclimation “improves” the taste.
