Don Sixto Toro Grande Cigar Review

This 6×56 stick features a medium tan wrapper with a dry small veined texture, tight invisible seams, rough double cap, even firm pack and rich sweet wood aroma. First light reveals a loose draw with tons of medium-full bodied sweet woody and grassy smoke with an oily mouthfeel and fairly short clean finish. The first third brings up flavors showing a sweet creamy textured wood, with a bit of a smoky caramel like finish that’s still short and crisp. Performance is excellent with plentiful smoke production. Hitting the 1/2 way mark at 30 minutes in, the ash falls off in a solid chunk, performance is still excellent and flavors have changed. The sweetness is diminished, replaced by a thick deeper tobacco and earth mixing with the wood, all of carrying though the finish which has grown long. Ending at 55 where it began to get very warm and bitter at the nub, the last third showed no further changes. Thank you very much to General Cigar for giving me this sample at the 2012 IPCPR show!
