This 6×52 toro stick features a dark brown mottled firmly packed wrapper with medium veins, visible seams, sloppy double cap, oily butter soft feel and pungent cocoa and leather aroma. First light reveals a good draw with smooth mild-medium smoke output showing a unique combo of a zingy earth, nuttiness, touch of sweetness and fleeting cocoa on the draw while the finish holds on to the nuttiness and adds a pepper zing. The first third burns well enough producing good medium bodied smoke showing flavors of a slightly sweet earth, bit of a pepper zing especially on the finish and a fleeting coffee note on the draw. The 1/2 way point comes at 30 minutes with flavor transitions to a thicker syrupy sweet earth and coffee core that sticks through the fuller finish with a hot pepper on the retrohale. Ending at 55 minutes right at the smokeable tobacco twine band, the last third ends at an hour just going to a washed out airy nuttiness. Thank you to Ben Miller for providing this sample for review!
