Cigar reviews – 99 words or less
When we talk about cigar brands older than a century, we typically look at Cuban and Central American companies. But not La Palina. The La Palina 125 Años Toro celebrates 125 years of heritage, American heritage. Here’s to 125 more! I tasted raisins on the cold draw. The first third brought salted pretzel, reminiscent of a county fair. A shift to earth and cocoa preceded more earth and spices through the midpoint. But the final third bore the disgusting taste of an extinguished campfire. The toro also didn’t want to stay lit, making me work to keep it going.
