John Starks #3 Signature Series Connecticut Toro from Legends Cigars


John Starks #3 Signature Series Connecticut Toro
Monday night at Legends of Fire, in Northern Quest Casio, my wife and I had the opportunity to meet NBA legend, John Starks. It was an amazing event and everyone in attendance received two of John's great cigars, one Connecticut, one Maduro. We picked up a box, which John autographed plus he posed for pictures with us. We had a great time.

This John Starks #3 Signature Series Connecticut Toro from Legends Cigars was another top of the line cigar. From the foot there were mild aromas of oak and hay to the nose and after clipping the end-cap the free cold draw had the same flavor mix.

The cigar itself had top-notch construction. It was packed well full length, plus the silky smooth Claro colored Connecticut wrapper was seamless and nearly vein free.

After toasting the foot and lighting the Connecticut, the first flavors within the mild bodied smoke were cream with a mild hint of spice. As the burn moved up the body there were other flavors of brown sugar, cedar, white pepper, oak and honey. The flavor mix wasn't very complex, but the flavors were balanced and they complimented each other to deliver a tasty smoke.

Overall the John Starks #3 Signature Series Connecticut Toro, was another really nice cigar. The burn line was razor sharp, a nice oily gloss developed on the wrapper as the burn progressed and it gave me sixty minutes of smoking pleasure. This is another stick that you shouldn't pass up if you find one!
