Jaxx Old School Toro by La Sirena Cigars

This Jaxx Old School Toro by La Sirena Cigars came my way as a review sample from Cigar Train. I've never tried the Jaxx so i am pretty excited put some fire to the foot and give it a spin.

Don't let the outside appearance of the Jaxx fool you. Sure the oily maduro colored wrapper shows some veins and seams, but inside it's all business. Checking the cold aromas both the foot and the firm draw provide flavor notes of mild pepper and leather.

After toasting and lighting the foot, my palate was rewarded with a smooth mix of medium bodied smoke--this cigar was one of the smoothest cigars I've sampled. There were initial flavors of pepper, fermented tobacco and oak, plus the wrapper left behind a sweet aftertaste of cocoa on my lips. As the cigar burned on there were other flavors of brown sugar, oak, cream, charcoal, burnt marshmallows, cocoa and espresso. The cigar ended full bodied and with my favorite burnt mocha finish. Tasty!
When doing my visual cold inspection I noticed the bunch at the foot was a bit off center, at the mid-point the burn did need a correction, but other than that, this was a fantastic cigar.

If you get the chance to try the Jaxx Old School Cigar, don't pass it up.
