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 Ice water

Pre-Light: 17 Points of 10 Possible

It was a little oily with a good cap and not very many veins. I used a cigar punch which did not split the cap or the wrapper. The cigar was soft and pleasant to the touch with a good, strong fine tobacco cigar smell.

Light & Burn: 15 Points of 15 Possible

Burns fine and slow and even down to the cap. It did not require any relights or any touch ups. The ash is well layered and white with hints of black in spots, and the first ash did not fall off until almost 2/3 in. The draw was great using a punch cut and produced hardy amounts of smoke.

Construction: 29 Points of 30 Possible

The wrapper was very well constructed and the cap was also constructed well and held up well to the punch cut. The punch cut allowed large amounts of smoke to hit the palate. The construction made the cigar hold up great throughout the whole smoking experience..

Flavor: 33 Points of 45 Possible

I'm getting all sorts of flavors: red pepper and leather in the first third, espresso and cream in the second third, and a sweet component that tied it all together in the final third. There was a slight bitterness with a hint of creaminess that left an intriguing aftertaste. The char line was perfect to the end of the cigar.

Summary

Overall it was  an excellent evening smoke to cap off the night. It felt great in my hand and the smoke was hardy enough to flavor the air. The tastes blended well and anyone looking to enjoy a good medium bodied smoke that tastes great and has a pleasant aroma, then this is it.
