Toro ExtraI really enjoy this dark. It’s dark and chocolatey. It’s the perfect after dessert smoke to end the night. I also enjoy all Drew Estate cigars. They are all well made and use the best leaf and tobacco.551

Toro ExtraGreat price, easily should be a $13 stick. Consistent, great draw, sweet and nutty.551

Toro ExtraComing from DE I had high hopes and were on sale.
Flavor profile is reasonable, closer to pipe tobacco and the burnt Maduro associated to the Liga. No complexity, draw, looks, and price are spot on. Still a little too burnt and pipe tasting for me but the real issue is construction and humidity.
Two fell apart when a smoked them the first week after getting them and a third I literally pitched because the wrapper came off completely when cutting. Gave the others a month and tried a few, pretty much the same thing. Don't think about a punch and hope that a standard or V cut holds.
Lots of great cigars in this price range here so go for something else at JRs.251

Toro ExtraThe draw was fine but the cigar came dry. So dry that cutting them was a risk. Out of 10 that I had 2 were pitched because they split and no, it's not a storage issue. Additionally, they did not improve over time.
Flavor was decent. Bold and more of a pipe tobacco taste and lots of black smoke. Burn was uneven due to the dryness. Construction was good.
I would avoid if possible; paid around $5 a stick and in that range there are way better (and consistent). Everything else shipped in that order was fine.251
