2012 By Oscar Maduro Toro was a box-pressed premium cigar with outstanding construction and burn. Bold flavors of white pepper, earth, cocoa, and hints of citrus, ended with a long and creamy finish. I would often take pause to enjoy the cigars sweet spicy aroma and firm white ash. This was an excellent cigar from start to finish.
It's not very hard to say something nice about a cigar made by Oscar Valledares, I am a tremendous fan. But this one in particular always insures a sense of pure enjoyment to your smoke. Not overwhelming yet strong enough to hit your taste buds. An earthy, rich smoke that pairs well with coffee or your favorite bourbon. I give this stick five stars.
