Have a Cigar: Plasencia Reserva 1898 Toro

Name: Plasencia Reserva 1898 Toro

Country: Nicaragua

Shape: Parejo

Size: Toro (6 1/2 inches x 52)

Strength: Medium

Earlier this year, I tried the Robusto vitola of the Plasencia Reserva 1898, and I liked it. This time, I went for the Toro simply because I was looking for something that would last longer than the Robusto.

Overall, the Plasencia Reserva 1898 is an affordable cigar that tastes great. I like to pair it with Johnnie Walker Black Label or The Famous Grouse Smoky Black, but a good glass of gin and tonic also goes very well with it.

Name: Gold Edition Short Torpedo

Country: Honduras

Shape: Torpedo

Size: (5 inches x 64)

Strength: Medium to Full

The Gold Edition Short Torpedo worked like a silver bullet. I needed to kill the stress to be able to start to think clearly again. And that’s exactly what it did.

I paired with with American coffee and smoked it on my balcony.

I got some woody notes and hints of pepper, grass, and petrichor.

Strength: Medium to Full

It was a very fine smoke on a very fine day. I paired it with Laphroaig 10.

Aesthetically speaking, I can say that I liked the Rocky Patel Decade Torpedo better. That would be the more attractive vitola. But in terms of taste and experience, the Toro was as amazing as the Torpedo.

I got hints of creamy cappuccino, black pepper, prune, and leather.

The Rocky Patel Decade Toro had a good draw, and it burned evenly until finish.
