AVO Heritage Toro Review
Initial lighting taste - Spicy woodiness.
First third - Spice, citrus, leather and cedar wood notes.
Second third - Spice continues, tangy citrus, leather and sweet fruit notes. Very nice.
Last third - Spice, citrus leather and fruity sweetness. Long finish of spice and tangy leather.
Construction - A nice looking, brown wrapper with a somewhat bumpy texture and some moderate veins. The wrapper had a slight oily sheen to it. Burn was straight producing a light gray ash that was solid and held on. Draw was very good and allowed for plenty of smoke.
This was a fantastic cigar - great complexity and balance and a flavor profile that I love. The sweet fruit notes on the back end of the taste was very enjoyable. MSRP for this vitola is $8.50 which this cigar is worth every bit of. I smoked this down to my finger tips and wished there was more. By far my favorite line from AVO Cigars hands down. Definite recommend.
