Our Picadores shows her chops early with scrumptious complexity highlighted by an uber creamy texture and feel complementing a heady mix of raspberry, caramel, black pepper and toast notes. There’s a soft spice that lingers and increases during the smoke and the finishes go from toast and coffee to baked bread and black pepper. Transitions feature an overall smoky character with more chocolate and cedar notes dominating the profiles. Rich and incredibly smooth, this gal likes to be smoked (1:06 – pretty fast for a 6” toro). This cigar simply fires on all cylinders without a hiccup, is delicious and is thoroughly enjoyable.
