Wicked Indie Toro Review

Wicked Indie Toro - 6 X 54. Wrapper - Nicaraguan Habano, Binder - Nicaragua (Aged 3 years), Filler - Nicaragua (Aged 3 years). Medium bodied. Made by The East India Trading Company which is a subsidiary of the Beach Cigar Group (Gurkha), and was created to release creative and exciting new brands that did not necessarily fall under the Gurkha image and branding.

Initial lighting taste - Dry cedar and pepper.

First third - A breadiness, pepper, cedar and some sweet notes.

Second third - Breadiness, pepper and a sweet nougat now is becoming more dominant with some woody notes.

Last third - A bready creaminess, sweet nougat, pepper and cedar notes. Long finish of a sweet creaminess and spice.

Construction - Nice looking, light-brown wrapper with some small veins and a slight oily sheen. No soft spots. Burn was straight with a grayish-black colored solid ash that held on. Draw was very good and produced a good amount of smoke.

This was a very impressive cigar that had great complexity and balance.  I particularly liked the way the sweet nougat flavor kept building as I progressed through the cigar.  The bready creaminess was very enjoyable as well.  MSRP is $5.00 for this size which I would smoke everyday at that price.   An excellent choice for a smoke anytime after lunch or a medium-sized meal.  I would definitely recommend for those who enjoy a creamy sweet cigar with pepper spice.
