Toro Grande Purchased a box ox these, on sale, after going to a local "smoke in" hosted by this maker. With a few rare exceptions, Nicaraquan cigars are not on my favorites list. However, was impressed with the excellent construction, which was flawless, the strength, which ranges from high medium to strong, and the flavor, which is mostly pure rich clean unaldulterated tobacco. A slight sugar/caramel and leather is also noticed. NOTE: Since finishing this box of Unforgiven Grande Toros, I have purchased single and doubles of other available choices in the Carraras line. While some BOTL may like these, they do not satisfy my liking and IMO do not compare to the Unforgiven line. 5 5 1 August 29, 2020 STAN A.
