Cigar Review: Davidoff Nicaragua Toro

Initial Thoughts:

The Davidoff Nicaragua Toro should be an excellent cigar. After all, Davidoff is one of the premier brands in the cigar industry. And, after smoking and reviewing the Winston Churchill Late Hour Toro, I have fairly high expectations for the Davidoff Nicaragua – a nearly $20 cigar.

After cutting the end of the cigar, the cold draw produced flavors of wheat and grass that were very light. When lighting the cigar, the first flavors were classic Nicaraguan with hints of both spiciness and sweetness and just a whiff of leather. The initial draw is a little tight.

Line: Nicaragua
Size: 5 1/2 x 54
Cut: Guillotine
Light: Torch
Price: $19.50 – Luxury Cigar Club
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano
Binder: Nicaragua

Through the middle of the cigar, the burn was a little uneven. The flavors were ok, and the draw was perfect. However, for a nearly $20 cigar, I was a little concerned about the value for the price since the cigar became soft going into the final third.

Final Thoughts:

The Davidoff Nicaragua Toro is a good cigar, but not a great one. It's a little expensive for what you get, and, for the price, I think it should smoke a little longer and have better construction. There were some minor issues where the cigar had an uneven burn.

For me, this particular stick of the Davidoff Nicaragua Toro earns a CigarScore 4 – it's got some minor issues, but it's still a good cigar.
