My Father #3
So this is the Toro sized stick with some good time in the humi and was a gift. I have been wanting to fire up one of these jewels after reading the endless drivel about their awesomeness. I had nice conditions with a little breeze and 70 degrees and water to drink. I will say it was a damn good stick with very nice creamy flavors. Creamy was really what popped up in my mind during the smoke. Construction was great, took flame easily, and burned like a charm with zero issues. I would say med to med+ in the strength department although no discernable buzz or anything. So basically right down my alley. I could easily see making this Toro a regular in my rotation. Now, here is the thing. There is no way I could see myself dropping $7-$10 a stick for these. Were they good? You bet! Was it something where the next mission in life was to acquire more? No. There could be two things at work here: 1) I am just too much of a cheap skate and don't like paying premiums for cigars. Very possible and even likely this is true. 2) There are LOTS of great cigars out there for $3-$4. This is true also. Solution? I would like to buy more at a reasonable price...so will be keeping and eye out for some bargain pricing.
