Davidoff Nicaragua Toro

At first one would think “What” when hearing Davidoff produced a Nicaraguan Puro, because it’s well known for its Dominican wide range. I was very interested as a fan of Nicaragua tobacco. And didn’t wait too long until they appeared on the shelves in the local market. This line come in 3 different “Vitolas” Short Corona, Robusto and Toro, well I smoked them all but my review is based on a Toro.

Size: 5 1/2 x 54

Smoking:

The cigar starts very calm, surprisingly calm, but not boring. Some sweet tobacco, wood and a lite coffee. An inch down the cigar start to show some of its abilities with a medium body and flavors. With coffee earth and sweet cedar this cigar keep progressing. At the halfway point the cigars is stronger than before with a change of the flavors profile. Mocha!! Still cedary, but spicy, on the retro-hale. The last third is still the same with one change that the smoke got spicier.

Final thoughts:

With all the negative opinions I read I like the cigar “not very impressed though”. I know some people are disappointed that this Nicaraguan Puro isn’t what they expected and I accept that, however, comparing it to Padrons just because they use tobaccos from same country is not acceptable it’s different story. After all it’s a Davidoff and if you are familiar with the brand you’ll know they never go too wild. After smoking the 3 Vitolas I can say the Short Corona and the Toro are more consistent than the Robusto. In conclusion the Non Cuban Davidoff always been a subject of argument and each has his own opinion.
