Cigar Review | Padron Damaso Toro

The featured cigar in this review is the Padron Damaso Toro (6 x 52) priced at $15. The Padron Damaso Toro was released at the 2015 IPCPR. Dámaso is in reference to an earlier patriarch in the family, Dámaso Padrón, grandfather of José O. Padrón, the company’s founder. In 1890, Dámaso left the Canary Islands and would eventually begin growing tobacco in Cuba.

Onto the Cold Draw

There is a mix of tobacco, baking spice, dried cherry and chili pepper.

Initial Draws and Impression

On the first few draws there is a mix of nut, coffee and cream, chili pepper and some mystery flavor on the retrohale. After the each draw the chili pepper builds on the finish with the cigar feeling very smooth and well-balanced. I felt the pepper gave an illusion of strength, but it is a medium-bodied cigar.

Transitions

  • Salty, pepper and hay
  • Increased pepper lever
  • Still medium bodied

Talk about the burn and construction

The coastline is razor straight and no touch-ups were required. The ash hung on for 1.5-2 inches before I tipped it into the ashtray.

Final Thoughts

This cigar had just enough pepper to make the cigar interesting. Smokers of full strength and bodied cigars may not like this one. Despite this, it is a great cigar.

Forgive me, I sat the cigar down to eat dinner and when I returned it was still excellent.

    I enjoy LeeMac’s reviews more so than Bryan’s of Cigarobsession. Leander will tell you about what he’s tasting more so than Bryan based on what I’ve watched. I’m not trying to sound negative in any way. Big ups to the positivity in light of circumstance. Always cheers me up. Great review as always. Thanks, Leander.

    Thanks much brother. As reviewers we all have different styles. My style is based on what I was looking for in a review. And of course i can only be me :-). I watch the other reviewers and sometimes at the end of the review I find they didnt tell me much about the cigar. Or they say every cigar is great. We all have different opinions…i give mine always

    Brian of CO is horrible lol sorry bro…not a fan. Years ago Brian was reviewing a Fake Montecristo No.2 and he was saying how good it was and how he could taste all these Cuban flavors…anyways I respect every cigar reviewer on the web but some dont float my boat…I mean at least let me know what leaf is in the blend, size and price…CO is lazy.
