Padilla 88 Aniversario Toro Cigar Review – This 6×52 stick features a firm box pressed dark chocolate wrapper with an oily fine tooth, large double cap and pungent campfire and cocoa aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with rich plentiful medium bodied smoke showing notes of a big deep earth and building pepper with a bit of a rough retrohale as it brings out more pepper texture. A slight heat and oil follow on the lips to the next draw. The first third shifts to a creamy slightly sweet cocoa with a much smoother smoke, keeping just a bit of the pepper and spice on the tail of the finish. The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes with flavor shifting to a sweet creamy coffee, keeping the same long finish. Ending at 1:10 the last third keeps all the same notes with the addition of a hazelnut, much like syrup in an cappuccino.
