Herrera Esteli TAA Exclusiva Toro Cigar Review – This 6×52 stick features a dark chocolate mottled thick oily wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and pungent musty sweet cocoa aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with medium bodied smoke showing flavors of a slightly bitter damp earth and touch of mustiness on the short finish. The first third brings up the body to medium-full with a long oily finish carrying flavors of a bright zingy cinnamon and light earth with a smooth smoke. The 1/2 way point comes at 40 minutes with perfect construction dropping the ash in big chunks. Flavors go pretty plain with just a big damp but smooth earth and a slight pepper tingle over the top of my tongue. Ending at 1:25 the last third holds the same flavors but ramps up to a full body and touch of strength down to the cool nub with perfect construction.
