Don Lino Black Toro Cigar Review
This 6×50 stick features a very dark almost black, very oily smooth wrapper with a firm even pack, small veins, tight seams, double cap and mild oily tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful medium-full bodied smoke giving a leathery earth and almost anise taste on the draw followed by a slick oily earth finish. The first third quickly changes, dropping to mild-medium body with flavors of peppermint, cream and cherry holding through the short finish. 25 minutes in by the 1/2 way point the ash still held, body and construction were still the same while flavors shifted slightly bringing the oily smooth earth forward over the mint. Ending at 1:10 with a hot nub remaining, the last third showed no further changes. Thank you to viewer Esteban Ortiz for sending this in for review!
