Label Your Cigar Pedro Estevez Barberpole Toro Cigar Review

This 6 1/8×52 stick offers a two tone wrapper using two different inter lapping leaves. Both offer a dry satin feel, with minimal veins. If the seams were’t different colors you wouldn’t see those either. The construction is spongy but even and it puts off a faint wood and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, tons of rich thick oily smoke and mild-medium flavors of a sweet earth and wood with a long smooth finish. The first third builds on the initial flavors adding a pepper and spice component especially on the finish, while the overall body is up to a smooth and solid medium. The burn is fairly fast, even taking slow draws about 2 per minute. 15 min in, about 1 1/2″ down the ash fell off and the draw flavors changed to a mild-medium creamy milk chocolate with a touch of pepper on the finish. 25 min in at the 1/2 way point, flavors changed adding a deep eath and a nice spice kick to the finish, pushing the body back to a solid medium. Ending at 55 min where it began to get too hot for my taste, the last third transitioned to a very dry almost bitter chocolate and very deep earth, dropping the pepper spice and oil. Thank you very much to LabelYourCigar.com for sending this in for review!
