Marrero Fuerte Gran Toro Cigar Review – This 6.5×54 box pressed stick features a dark chocolate glove soft oily wrapper with slight tooth, firm even pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap and slight cocoa and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with thick medium bodied smoke showing flavors of a smooth oily sweet cream and light earth with a short clean finish of the same. The first third burns perfectly and very slowly, stacking the ash in dimes with a razor sharp burn. Flavors are mostly unchanged just adding a touch of soft pepper and spice on the tail end of the long finish. The 1/2 way point comes at 45 minutes still with excellent construction and medium-full flavors that are now more complex. The draw is a creamy sweetness, light earth and prominent leather and light coffee while the finish drops the pepper but holds a touch of the cayenne spice. Ending at 1:25 the last third dropped the leather and coffee going to a sweet deep earth and medium-full kick of strength from the band point back.
