ToroI’ve smoked both this Toro size and the Belicoso. The draw has zero resistance, which should be a positive. However, with a cigar of this large ring size, the smoke comes into your mouth in a huge quantity and somewhat hot.
The flavor of the Hispaniola is great. The smoking experience is optimized by the tapered tip of the Belicoso.
I’m not a cigar chewer. But with this Toro size, you need either a V-cut or you need to make the end of the cigar smaller by basically chewing on it and moistening it, to limit the amount of smoke coming in.
Great cigar, but get the Belicoso.451

ToroI got two of these in a sampler, and both were excellent. The construction, draw and burn were perfect. Flavor was robust, spicy and sweet. Too bad they are so expensive, because these are my new favorite Upmanns!551
