Flor de San Andres by Rocky Patel Toro Cigar Review – This 6.5×52 box pressed stick features a dark chocolate oily toothy wrapper with a soft even pack, small veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and pungent sweet chocolate aroma, almost artificial smelling. First light reveals a perfect draw with plumes of thick medium-full bodied sweet smoke showing notes of cocoa, wood and pepper with a long zingy finish. The first third turns in to a pepper and spice bomb pushing out the other flavors, with perfect construction and burn. The 1/2 way point comes at 45 minutes needing a big touchup but otherwise burning and drawing very well. Body is still near full but still very plain and peppery. Ending at 1:20 the last third came down to a medium body with almost no changes.
