Mike's Cigars 1950 Toro

Mike's Cigars 1950 Toro Cigar
I've seen these 1950 cigars in the Mike's Cigars catalog for quite a while and wanted to try them out. Mike's Cigars hooked me up with a couple of samples so here we go!

You can pick these toro's up in a cool looking tin of 10 for just $45.95 from Mike's Cigars web site.

This 1950 Toro is covered with an oily, Colorado Claro colored wrapper. It has a few small veins, nice seams, a triple cap and it's firmly packed full length. From the foot there are light notes of fermented tobacco while the free cold draw tastes like spicy Spanish cedar.

Once it's burning, there are mild bodied flavors of sugar and spice and everything nice, up front. These flavors are followed up with nuances of tree fruit, cream, faint oak, earth and toast. The sixty minute burn time finished with medium bodied flavors of brown sugar and earth.

Overall this was a pretty darn nice cigar. There were no harsh flavors, it had a clean burn and the wrapper developed an oily sheen as the burn moved up the cigar. With it's price point and flavor mix it would be great cigar for someone new to cigars or someone that just wants a good tasting cigar on the milder side.

Rated 92

I would like to thank Mike's Cigars for providing these samples for review!
