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!

    I’m curious if this would be a good selection for a new smoker? I still get that upset stomach feeling after smoking (Just to show how new I am LOL) and am looking for something with a good taste but not so much body that I’m ready to crawl into a hole. The review sounds like it would be perfect though, really enjoyed the flavors you described.

      You’re actually thinking of strength, not body :) You should check out one of his reviews, for a Brickhouse cigar. It’s a fairly cheap one that he even says in the video is something great for new smokers to try / learn off of pretty much.

      I don’t remember at the moment, but I know the text for this review here doesn’t say anything about strength so this would still be a safe one for you to try w/o dealing with the nicotine butt kick. I’ve never been one for much strength, and Bryan isn’t either! It’s just not for everyone.
