Nicarao Exclusivo Toro Cigar Review
This 6×52 stick features a very dark almost black firmly packed wrapper with an oily gritty feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and a rich musty chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with good medium bodied smoke showing flavors of an oily, smooth leather and a short slightly bitter finish. The first third sticks with the smooth leather core getting oily and adding a touch of a white pepper tingle through the now long finish. Construction is excellent with a perfect draw, burn and smoke output. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 25 minutes the leather changes to a deep earthiness with a musty damp finish and the bit of pepper zing is almost gone. Finishing at 55 minutes the last third showed no further changes. Thank you very much to Angelo Solomite for sending this sample in!
