This is a very complex medium-bodied cigar. This cigar picks up a nice mix of salt and pepper that combines with the sweet chocolate, dried fruit that I find common in maduro tobacco. The flavors fleet in and out offering several very interesting flavor combinations as follows:
- Hot chocolate
- Pepper cream
- Salt & pepper
- Dried fruit & pepper
- Floral & pepper
The Entrada Toro is a very smooth and well-balanced cigar with no unwanted ammonia or bitterness.
