7-20-4 Grand Toro Cigar Review
This 6.5×56 cedar sleeve wrapped stick features a dark chocolate spotted and mottled wrapper with small veins, big gritty tooth, a very firm pack, tight seams, large double cap with pigtail and a very mild soapy aroma. First light reveals a loose draw with minimal thin smoke output showing mild-medium nutty tobacco notes with a long finish. The first third kicks up the smoke a bit showing an oily nuttiness on the draw with a good bit of cayenne heat that lasts and builds through the long finish. Burn is very good and slow, finishing the 1st third 30 minutes in while the body comes up to a medium and a deep caramel comes in now and then. Hitting the 1/2 way point 50 minutes in, construction is excellent, a bit of a gritty pepper joins the finish and a medium strength kick sets in. By the band point strength was up near full, beyond what I can comforably take. I ended it at 1:20 with 1.5″ remaining. Thank you to 70-20-4 Cigars for providing this for review!
