Davidoff Maduro Toro Review
Davidoff Toro Maduro - 6 X 48. Wrapper - Nicaragua, Binder - Dominican, Filler - Dominican. Medium - Full bodied.
Initial lighting taste - Dry woodiness, slight charcoal and spice.
First third - Spicy earthiness with sweet fruit-like notes. A wonderful citrus flavor emerges almost at the end of the first third.
Second third - Spice with an Earthiness, tangy citrus and sweet fruit. Very smooth and well balanced.
Last third - More of the same - Spice, tangy citrus, Earthiness and a fruity sweetness. Long finish of tangy spice and Earth.
Construction - Dark brown coarse wrapper with some moderate veins. Wrapper is somewhat dry. Burn was good producing a solid dark gray ash. Draw was perfect.
I fantastic tasting cigar that had very good complexity and balance. Those that follow my reviews know that I love a citrus spice flavor in my cigar and this one had it. The sweet fruitiness was also very enjoyable. MSRP for this vitola is a whopping $18.50 which makes this cigar very expensive and not the best value even though I really like the cigar. For me at this price point, it would be a special occasion cigar. Definite recommend if you willing and able to spend the money
