Falto

Falto legado

The Falto Legado is a corona gorda, 5½x47, that was created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of La Garita Cigar Co & Falto cigars. The cigar is made from a Nicaraguan wrapper and a Dominican binder filled with tobacco from both countries. I got this cigar from Luis Falto to review on my blog.

The wrapper has a nice chocolate color and has a few big veins. I smell straw and a barnyard, the strength of the smell is medium. The construction feels good and so is the predraw, which tastes like spicy tobacco and raisin.

I taste coffee, it is bitter but that bitter flavor disappears almost instantly. The coffee gets accompanied by some wood and after half an inch even some vanilla. After a third I taste a soapy flavor. That may sound disgusting, but it isn’t, it’s not bad at all. The cigar also has a sweet flavor to it and the wood flavor is a combination of all kinds of wood. This is very interesting, I have never experienced this before.

Right before halfway the cigar gets a bit sweeter and once I passed the mid point of the cigar I also taste a hint of chocolate. All I can say is that this cigar is unique. The woodflavors are getting stronger after two thirds and I also taste a very mild cinnamon flavor near the end.

This cigar lasted me for an hour and forty minutes. I got a nice amount of smoke, that started out thin but got more body along the way. The draw and burn are good. The ash is medium dark and reasonably firm. This cigar is medium bodied and full flavored.

Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, this is a cigar with a unique flavor profile, I liked it.

Falto invicto

Tabacalera Falto is a cigar brand from the Dominican, which was founded in 1995 by Luis Falto. I got in touch with Luis and he gave me a large sample of his cigars for me to review. Today I’ll be reviewing the Falto Invicto, a 6¼x52 torpedo with a Dominican corojo wrapper, a Domincan binder and Dominican filler, which makes it a Dominican puro, even though it is made in Puerto Rico.

The cigar has a beautiful band and a nice, dark & oily wrapper with a couple of big veins. The construction of this cigar feels good and I notice that the wrapper feels a bit silky. The predraw is fine and I taste some pepper on my lips and the back of my throat.

I taste a smooth coffee with some spices and wood. After half an inch I also taste a sugar like sweetness in the aftertaste. After ¾ of an inch I taste herbs, spices and toasted wood. The coffee and sugar have disappeared. I think I even tasted a little cinnamon.

After a third I also taste some black pepper with the spices, the herbs and toasted wood and earthy flavors. The flavors are all well balanced, none of them overpower the others. After two thirds these flavors get company from a herbal, minty freshness.

This cigar lasted me for two hours. I didn’t like the amount and thickness of the cigar in the beginning, there could have been more and it could have been thicker, but it got much better after a while. The draw was great. The dark ash is firm. This cigar is medium to full flavored and medium bodied.

Falto Perla reserva especial seleccionada petit corona

I got in touch with Luis Falto from Tabacalera Falto/La Garita Cigar co some time ago and he shipped a huge sampler my way for review purposes, so readers of my blog, you can expect a bunch of Falto reviews in the next few months. The first review is the 4×40 Falto Perla Reserva Especial seleccionada petit corona, a nice looking stick without a band made from Dominican tobacco with a Brazilian wrapper.

The wrapper of this short stick looks smooth with a few minor veins. It is quite dark, shiny and oily. The cigar has a strong barnyard aroma. The construction feels good and the predraw, that leaves a sweet raisin flavor on my palate, is great.

I taste a full coffee flavor with wood. After half an inch the coffee disappears but instead I taste wood, chocolate and pepper. Little over an inch the pepper gains some strength on a chocolate background.

Halfway I get surprised by a cinnamon flavor. The pepper fades to the background and changes into a herbal spice with pepper. The cinnamon is still there. This flavor palate sticks around till it’s time to put the nub to rest in the ashtray.

This little cigar lasted me for fifty minutes. I got plenty of smoke, which was quite thin. The ash is light colored, dense and firm. The draw is great and the burn is straight like an arrow. This cigar is full flavored and medium bodied.

Would I buy this cigar again? If I could, I would. Great little smoke.
