Martin Family of Cigars Fiera Super Toro Review
Martin Family of Cigars Fiera Super Toro - 6 X 54. Wrapper - Nicaragua (Dark Corojo), Binder - Nicaragua (Criollo), Filler - Nicaragua (Corojo). Full bodied.
Initial lighting taste - Dry oak wood.
First third - Spicy, toasted wood, leather and some cherry notes.
Second third - Spice continues with the toasty woodiness, leather and cherry notes. Smooth and complex.
Last third - Spice, toasty oak wood, leather and cherry notes. Very nice balance. Long finish of spice and oak.
Construction - Attractive reddish-brown wrapper with several major veins visible. Bumpy cap. Burn - good burn with a solid light-gray ash that holds on. Draw was perfect with just the right amount of smoke.
A fantastic full bodied cigar with an interesting and extremely enjoyable flavor profile. In particular, the cherry notes were a unique and very welcome addition to this cigars profile. Balance and complexity were excellent as has been my experience with all of the Pedro Martin cigar lines. MSRP for this vitola is a very economical $7.30 which easily makes this cigar a regular rotation smoke. Another great job by Martin Family of Cigars.
