The draw was slightly tighter than I prefer, but didn’t cause any issues with the smoking experience.
The cigar began with cedar and baking spice and saw some mustiness join in fairly quickly. A bit of cream also joined. Toward the end of the second third, the baking spice and cream left and the final third saw the addition of dry earth and an herbal note. The burn was an issue with multiple re-lights and strength built from slightly below medium to slightly above. The JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Toro had a nice start, but once the supporting notes of baking spice and cream started dropping, the cigar became fairly average. I know a lot of people like this line, but for me, it’s not a special cigar past the first third. The price is fairly high as well, and I’d probably go with the regular Aladino line over this one. If you’re a fan of the Aladino line, it’s definitely worth checking this out to see how it ranks for you.
