Maria Guerrero Toro

Sorry for the late post.

Up for review is the Maria Guerrero Toro from Altadis. I have smoked a few of these in the past and have enjoyed them. This particular cigar measures 6 inches long with a 56 ring gauge. It has a beautiful cameroon wrapper. The wrapper and cap was flawless. The overall construction was excellent.

I used my guillotine cutter to cut this cigar and decided to try matches this week. A tip for using matches is to use two at the same time. This provides a bigger flame and is needed for a cigar of this ring gauge. Pre-light draw did not reveal any flavors to me and the scent of the cigar was that of a typical cigar. I did not pick up any unique aromas. The draw on it was excellent as well.

After lighting it up, the cigar produced a large amount of smoke. Initial flavors had a hint of spice and leather. The burn was flawless. The ash was a nice white color and fairly strong. I did not pick up a lot of flavors from the cigar. Not sure if this was due to what I had smoke previously in the day or not. Overall I was satisfied with the cigar. This would be a great cigar for someone who is looking for a light smoke. I paid about $7 for mine and I expect MSRP is around $4 to $5 a stick.
