Smoke Notes Cigar Reviews: Untamed Toro by La Aurora

Untamed Toro by La Aurora (5 1/2×54) W: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro B: Dominican F: Nicaraguan, Dominican Factory: E. Leon Jimines Tabacalera, Santiago, Dominican Republic   La Aurora’s strongest blend yet, the full-bodied Untamed brings a bold new look and tasting profile to the century-old company’s cigar portfolio. A combination of select Nicaraguan and Dominican leaves under an abundantly oily and textured Connecticut Broadleaf are the secret to Untamed’s furious full flavor.   Notes: The initial few puffs of the cigar were 4-alarm spicy; proceed with caution. The Untamed produced lots of dense, creamy smoke with each draw and was impressively smooth. The word “robust” gets thrown around all too often in this industry, it should really be reserved for cigars like this. For those masochists out there who enjoy a tear-producing peppery retrohale, Untamed will not disappoint. Before I even finished this review I jumped onto our site and bought a stash of these for myself. For all the bold, heavy flavor that the Untamed pumped out for the majority of the smoke, the final third was surprisingly mellow in comparison – more coffee and wood than peppery spice.   Flavor Report: Fiery red pepper, smoky cedar, espresso, dried fruit sweetness, cocoa, sweet cream, butter, gingerbread Overall: 9/10   The Untamed Toro’s hearty, robust flavor hit the spot like Hawkeye from start to finish. This, along with …
