Fire toro

This cigar came in a bomb from Shellie. The pretty 6 x 48 cigar, made by Rocky Patel, has a pretty wrapper with some light veins and feels pretty tight. It came packed in cellophane. The tobacco used for this cigar is triple fermented corojo and comes from Nicaragua and Honduras. The predraw is fine and tastes like straw.

I get a sweet coffee like flavor with a chocolate aftertaste. After half an inch the coffee is replaced with wood. At the 2 inch mark the flavors swap again, the wood is gone, the coffee is back. Halfway the chocolate disappears too and is replaced by hay. The chocolate aftertaste returns when I reach the 2/3rd point and I can also taste a light pepper flavor.

The flavors are nice but mild to medium, just like the overall power of the cigar. The burn is perfect, the draw and the smoke are fine.

Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, this is a nice cigar to start the day with.
