Montecristo Relentless Toro

Montecristo Relentless Toro
Today I'm lucky enough to review another Famous Smoke Shop exclusive, the Montecristo Relentless Toro Cigar. The Relentless is another nicely sized 6 x 54 Toro that just feels good in your hand. It comes draped in a silky smooth Colorado Claro colored shade grown Ecuadorian wrapper that's pretty much seamless and vein free. From the foot, the Nicaraguan and Brazilian Mata Fina long-fillers give off a light cedar aroma, while the firm draw tastes like spicy Spanish cedar. 

Once burning the cigar produces mild bodied flavors of toast, cream and mild white pepper. As the burn moves up the body there are other flavor notes of sugar, toasted marshmallows, raw sugar, mild earth and hints of leather. The Montecristo Relentless Toro finishes it's eighty minute burn in the medium bodied range tasting like coffee with extra cream and sugar. 

In the first half the burn line was razor sharp, but in the second half it took off a bit, not enough to need a correction though. 

Overall this was a really nice cigar. It had a well balanced, sweet, creamy flavor mix with a hint of white pepper full length that I really enjoyed, plus I think 54 ring is about a perfect size. 

Like I said earlier, you can only get these from Famous-smoke.com so log-on and grab a few while you can, they're pretty darn tasty.
