Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Los Hermanos Toro Maduro

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  Up for review this time is the Los Hermanos Toro Maduro.  Some of the hype surrounding the cigar: "Los Hermanos, which translates to “The Brothers,” is a limited quantity cigar produced by the people of Casa Fernandez & Tropical Tobacco, who are known for growing some of the best tobaccos in the world at their Aganorsa farms. The Los Hermanos Maduro is a line extension of the boutique Los Hermanos brand, which sees the addition of a dark and oily San Andrés Maduro wrapper. These cigars are blended using Aganorsa grown Nicaraguan tobacco from legendary Cuban master Arsenio Ramos. The Los Hermanos Maduro is as full-bodied as the original Los Hermanos, but with the addition of earthy richness from the San Andres Maduro wrapper. All Los Hermanos cigars are made in small batch quantities to ensure quality year to year, so supplies are limited."  This cigar has been generously sponsored by our member Eric (smurf).  Thanks very much for your generosity Eric!

This cigar was enjoyed with coffee, water

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 10 Possible

The pre cut was very nice. The wrapper was a nice dark chocolate colour, oily, and it smelled of hay and mocha. There weren't any big veins or blemishes to it and it had a nice firm feel to the whole stick. It was nice and uniform from the foot to the cap.

Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

Herman... took the v-cut very well and burned razor sharp. Not additional touch- ups were required. Lots of thick flavorful smoke present. The ash however did not stick around longer that 1/2 inch. The toasting went well and so did the light in that I did not have to spend too much time making sure that the cigar was lit.

Construction: 30 Points of 30 Possible

The draw was very good, not to loose or too tight. It cut well and did not unravel on me at all. The burn was straight and tight all the way down to the nub. No cracking happened when I rolled the cigar in my fingers and it had a nice give to it when slightly squeezed.

Flavor: 27 Points of 45 Possible

the first 1/3 started off with a taste of sweetness, a little pepper, and some oak. As it proceeded I got a taste of red wine, honey, more oak, and a slight hint coffee. The last 1/3 had a strong red wine taste, along with some chocolate and coffee. It was a series of complex flavors that would change with each mouth full.

Summary

Although this cigar wasn't as spicy as I would have liked in my usual line up, I found that it was a nice light sweet surprise. I would recommend it to those who like a sweeter cigar as an after dinner smoke.
