Hi I’m Nada with SmokingCigarGirl and today I’m going to be reviewing the H. Upmann Legacy Toro. This is a 6×52 cigar with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler from the Dominican and Nicaragua.
The cigar has a very smooth wrapper and no visible veins. There is a little bit of a citrusy aroma on the foot of the cigar and a little bit of cocoa as well. The flavor on the cold draw is cocoa with a little bit of citrus. The first couple of puffs have a strong citrus flavor, lemon but not a sour lemony flavor, and a little bit of pepper on the finish.
The first couple of puffs have a lightly sweet note on the front of the palate and there’s some earthiness and woodsiness on the finish.
The First Third of the H. Upmann Legacy Cigar
The first third of the cigar has had some lightly earthy and sweet flavors on the front of the palate and the finish has been mostly citrusy. The citrusy flavors on the finish are not as distinctly lemony as they were at the very beginning of the cigar. It’s just a very strong citrus note. The burn so far has been mostly even and consistent and the draw is a little tighter than I normally like, but it hasn’t interfered with the smoking of the cigar.
The Second Third of the H. Upmann Legacy Cigar
The second third of the cigar has picked up the citrusy flavors on the front of the palate again and there is still a little bit of light sweetness on the front of the palate as well. The finish has picked up a little bit of woodsiness as the citrus flavors carry through to the finish. The draw has opened up since the beginning of the cigar; it’s much easier to smoke. The burn continues to be even and consistent.
The Final Third of the H. Upmann Legacy Cigar
The final third of the H. Upmann Legacy Toro has lost most of the citrus flavors that it has throughout the cigar. On the front of the palate it has mostly earthy flavors now and the finish is mostly black pepper.
Conclusion of the H. Upmann Legacy Cigar
The cigar has been mostly medium in body and strength throughout the cigar and would be a good afternoon cigar or first cigar of the evening. By the end, the cigar has had a great draw even though it was a little bit tight in the first third, and the burn has been even and consistent throughout the first smoke and hasn’t needed to be relit or touched up at all.
