Padilla Cazadores Toro Cigar Review
This 6×50 stick features a dark brown smooth and soft wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap, light firm pack and rich chocolate and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, good smoke output with a mild-medium dry tobacco core with a bit of sweetness and creamy texture. The finish is long and carries the tobacco core through with an oil on the lips. The first third is dominated by a dry bitter grass and small shot of tobacco core only on the draw. The finish is very long and full just giving the bitter tastes, not enjoyable whatsoever. 30 minutes in almost to the 1/2 way point, the ash is holding on very well still in one piece, the draw and smoke production is perfect and the burn is very good. Body is up to a medium-full still holding to the tobacco core, slight bitterness, but dropping the grassy vegetable like flavors for a black coffee. 50 minutes in the last third starts by finally dropping the bitterness, going with a medium bodied cinnamon and creaminess with the same long finish. The slight transition proved to be fleeting, with the last 15 minutes of the stick going back to parched bitter coffee, ending at 1:20. Thank you very much to the Hemry brothers, Brian & Brandon for sending this for review!
