MIRÓ Cigars Toro

MIRÓ Cigars Toro
Here's a great looking stick, the MIRÓ Cigars Toro that Cigar Train provided as a sample to review. I don't think Cigar Train carries these but you can pick them up at Famous Smoke Shop for $7.10 as a single.

Like I said this is a great looking cigar. The oily Colorado colored Sumatran wrapper is rolled on nicely, it has very fine veins and it even has some fine sandpaper-like tooth. It's packed well full length and the aged Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers give the cold foot a sweet, fruity aroma. After the triple cap is clipped the free draw provides flavor nuances of leather and oak.

Once burning the first mild bodied flavors are a mix of leather and brown sugar. The smoke is plentiful, dense and chewy. As the burn moved on there were other flavors of sandalwood, cream--lots of cream--molasses, barnyard and sugar. The flavor mix wasn't very complex but the flavors were balanced and satisfying. After seventy minutes the MIRÓ Cigars Toro finished maybe in the medium body range with flavors of coffee with extra cream and sugar.

There was one problem however, the burn. Looking at the foot the bunch was way off center and the burn canoed severely starting about an inch in. In total the burn needed corrected five times. Other than that, this was a great looking, top of the line cigar with a satisfying flavor mix.

Rated 88

I would like to thank Cigar Train for providing this sample for review.
