7-20-4 Grand Toro Cigar Review

This 6.5×56 cedar sleeve wrapped stick features a dark chocolate spotted and mottled wrapper with small veins, big gritty tooth, a very firm pack, tight seams, large double cap with pigtail and a very mild soapy aroma. First light reveals a loose draw with minimal thin smoke output showing mild-medium nutty tobacco notes with a long finish. The first third kicks up the smoke a bit showing an oily nuttiness on the draw with a good bit of cayenne heat that lasts and builds through the long finish. Burn is very good and slow, finishing the 1st third 30 minutes in while the body comes up to a medium and a deep caramel comes in now and then. Hitting the 1/2 way point 50 minutes in, construction is excellent, a bit of a gritty pepper joins the finish and a medium strength kick sets in. By the band point strength was up near full, beyond what I can comforably take. I ended it at 1:20 with 1.5″ remaining. Thank you to 70-20-4 Cigars for providing this for review!

    Nice review and I love these cigars. I’ve gone through a box of Lanceros since the show and will be picking up either this vitola or the corona. Thanks for the review and couldn’t agree more, but I do like the strength and nub mine.

    Looks good, might have to try one

  • Jared

    Flavors sound great, but not a fan of dizzy, sweat-inducing nic kick.

  • TimB

    Sounds like a smoke I want to try.

  • Tommz81

    Well, sounded good till the strength kicked in! I too am a light weight.

    Hey Bryan, a little off subject from this cigar but I love cream flavor in cigars but it seems like its few and far between that I get one with it. What is you go to stick for a creamy flavor. Thanks!

    • I will soon be able to answer the countless similar questions I get every year with the CigarFinder up above…announcement coming very shortly 🙂
