It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I check out the new Todos Las Dias by Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust. It features a sun-grown, Cuban-seed Nicaraguan wrapper with filler and binder tobaccos from Nicaragua. For this review, I smoke the Toro, a 6×52 stick. It retails for $12.45. This dark beauty features a slick black and silver band and foot band resulting in a very sharp appearance.
On the cold draw, I pick up wheat cereal notes. The wrapper produces a spicy earth aroma, while I smell something similar out of the foot. Once lit, the smoke gives me faint black pepper spice. Through the nose, charred toast takes over. The finish holds black pepper spice with coffee and cocoa.
The first third closes out at forty minutes. On the draw, cocoa and oak mix with black pepper. Through the nose, I find lots of spicy black pepper. The finish offers me light black pepper with sweet dark cocoa. Strength and body settle in at medium-to-full.
The second third gets me to one hour and fifteen minutes. Salty coffee and black pepper blend together on the draw. The retro-hale hits me with nutmeg, black pepper, and cocoa. On the finish, charred toast sits next to cocoa and black pepper. Strength and body jump to the full mark.
The final third ends at two hours. I pick up nutmeg and leather with black pepper on the draw. Through the nose, black pepper and cocoa are complimented by floral earth. The finish gives me spicy gingerbread with clove and char. Strength and body finish out at a hefty full.
The Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Todos Las Dias is an excellent cigar. It offers deep, rich flavors with complex “dark” notes. Throughout the experience, strength and body continually build but not just for the sake of it. Mild fans might want to steer clear, but if you enjoy full-bodied goodness, this is a must try and one of the best cigars of the year. I highly recommend it!
