Davidoff Nicaragua Toro Cigar Review

This 5.5×54 stick features a dark caramel colored wrapper with a firm dry feel, small veins, tight invisible seams, large sloppy double cap and a rich sweet barnyard aroma. First light reveals an extremely loose draw with good smoke output showing medium-full body flavors of a very smooth deep slightly bitter earth and a long finish of the same. The first third quickly shifts to a full bodied buttery nut and smooth earth combo, with a long oily finish adding a bit of spice on the lips. Burn isn’t perfect but self corrects just fine. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 40 minutes, it continues the same great flavorful performance, dropping the ash in a solid chunk. Ending out at 1:15 the last third dropped the nuttiness going to a smooth deep earth while the spice left the finish and the strength slowly ramped up to a medium. Thank you very much to Cigars Direct for generously providing this for review!

    Great video Bryan!

    Lots of snob appeal; too bad they can’t deliver the same for somewhat less money. The contest is the only way I’m ever going to have one of these.

    I do sometimes spend that kind of moolah on a stick, but only because I know it will deliver more. The Padron Family Series being a case in point.

    I might have to try this one. This sound like my type of flavors. A little expensive though.˚

    I’ve tried the short corona and I like it ok, and this one to burnt a bit wavy but corrected it self but the price is way to high.

    I’ve never smoked a Davidoff but this one sounds pretty good.

    • Flowers4Algernon

      Nobody questions their quality, no one.

      The point is that they’re overpriced and profit based upon snob appeal.

  • FireRunner

    I was gifted several of these a few months ago. Good to see you enjoyed it. I haven’t smoked Davidoff since the early 90s, will be looking forward to smoking one.

    • Flowers4Algernon

      You were GIVEN one. I’d like to strangle the guy who first used “gift” as a verb.

      Stop verbing nouns. Today.

  • Flowers4Algernon

    And yes, I know I just verbed a noun with “verbing”. It was to make a point!

      Some people never change….and apparently you are one of them.

      If you want to play in the sandbox, you’re going to have to either adopt or put up with the lingo of today’s kids. Otherwise you just come of as a curmudgeon.

      I don’t remember a video about voting for a post grammar Nazi anyway. So, “Lighten up Francis”.

      • Flowers4Algernon

        It’s your language, Today’s Kid. Abuse some other language.

    I got one of these with my last cigar.com order a month ago, can’t wait to try it now, sounds right up my ally.

    • Flowers4Algernon

      No offense, but it’s “alley”. An “ally” is the singular form of the word “allies”.

  • Flowers4Algernon

    “Ally” is pronounced “AL-eye”.

    I noticed my comments are being deleted or at least the last few have been. Am I offending anyone Bryon? It’s interesting that Mr. English major’s comments are still up but my very valid comment about pricing was taken down. I didn’t name any sites so what gives?

    • I didn’t delete anything, and there is nothing in the spam filter (which catches links). I have not seen any comments from you on this post so I don’t think they actually got posted?

    Bryan, I bought this cigar with the same size about 3 weeks ago and had a totally different experience. My draw was so tight, my jaw started to hurt after a while. I was not getting much smoke as a result. It did burn evenly, so at least that was a plus. It was a heavy and tight packed stogie for sure. The flavors were decent, but came nothing to the mild smoothness of their regular lines. Mine cost $18 + tax here in California.

    • I would definitely agree it’s not up to the standards of their regular line, that’s for sure.

  • Salvo

    Sweet, can’t wait to try those

  • Guy

    Dear Bryan,
