Back in Episode 64, I smoked a pre-release sample of this cigar. Paul smoked the Siboney vitola in Episode 74.

We have all commented how this cigar required some aging before smoking. It seemed to do wonders for me sitting the pre-release version, and smoking a post production version seems to also have the same effect.

I still got a complex flavor profile of earth, nut, exotic spice coffee, cream, and melon sweetness. I didn’t pick up any hickory notes, but the melon sweetness seemed to have a longer effect. It is a medium to full strength, medium to full-bodied smoke. The cigar continues to deliver an excellent burn and draw.

I will say, thus far I do believe the Brahman (Toro) is the best smoking size for this particular blend. It’s the one I deem worthy of a box-split.
