Pinar Del Rio 1878 Reserva Dominicana Capa Habana Toro Cigar Review

This 6×52 stick features a tan wrapper with a firm, slick oily wrapper, minimal veins, tight seams, a double cap with a pigtail, a closed foot and a slight hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with minimal smoke output but big medium-full body flavors of a very spicy and peppery tobacco, giving a very tingly wash over the tongue well through the finish. The first third mellows a bit to a medium body with slightly sweet and creamy earth flavors and the pepper doesn’t build until the short finish. 40 minutes in at the 1/2 way point it mellows out a bit further, coming down to a mild-medium body, dropping most of the pepper and zing. After a small touchup at the start the burn has been very good, not needing any attention and smoke output is also very good. Ending at 1:25 min where it began to get too warm for my taste, there were no flavor shifts in the last third however the strength did build up noticeably above the body, giving me a slight rush at the very end.
