The Ted’s Farris Toro is part of the Ted’s Select Collection and comes in 6 x 50, 5 x 50 and 5.5 x 56 all box-pressed. The Ted’s Farris Cigar was released in 2014 and created to match the attributes of his grandmother… “strong but likeable”.
One of her favorite sayings was, “Don’t Borrow Trouble”.
The cigar reviewed here is a Dominican cigar and is the 6″ x 50 Toro which came in a glass tube (Box-pressed). Generally, they are available on the website in boxes of 20.
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Corojo
Binder: Dominican Olor
Filler: Nicaraguan Viso, Dominican Cuban Seed Ligero & Seco
The cigar has a medium firm roll and has a single cap. The aroma is of glue, must and earth along with sweet tobacco. The draw is medium to firm.
Before lighting, the cold draw has tingly pepper on the lips and tobacco flavor.
There are three flavors present in this cigar: tobacco, pepper and the infamous LeeMack912, “Domincan Twang”. Overall the flavors are medium body and the finish is short/medium.
Total – 6.7/10
I liked the glass tube presentation. This is a decent cigar though I feel it is a bit overpriced. Flavor and strength were likeable just not a set of flavors that I enjoy very much.
