As we reported on Cigar Coop, Altadis USA is bringing back the VegaFina Sumum 2010. While it was originally released in a robusto format, the company has added a toro and a 6 x 60.

This size was also recently assessed on Cigar Coop. The following is what I wrote:

From a flavor standpoint, many of the same notes are present on the Sumum 2010 Toro as was on that original robusto. There are still going to be notes of wood, natural tobacco, and pepper. Like the Sumum 2010 Robusto, the Toro is also going to provide a nice lemon sweetness – which I think was the differentiator of that blend. The difference is that this year’s Toro had a little more strength than the Robusto from a couple of years ago. I assessed this as a medium strength smoke – which is a little high for a brand that is known for milder smokes. The flavors are still going to have some nice depth – and I assessed them to be medium to full-bodied.

Complexity-wise, while many of the same flavors were there, the Sumum 2010 Toro had less in the way of permutations and transitions.

This cigar is worthy of a box split in my book.
