811. Angel Cuesta Toro

Gifted by Drew Newman, 4th Generation Owner & General Counsel at J.C. Newman Cigars.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano Rosado
Binder: Undisclosed
Filler: Undisclosed
Origin: USA

Factory: El Reloj Cigar Factory (USA)
Box: Sold in 20 count boxes.
Release: 2023
Availability: Limited Yearly Production of twice a year.

Size: 6×52, Toro.

Wrapper: Hazelnut brown, oily and silky smooth with miniscule veins, the smoothest wrapper I’ve ever felt.

Construction: Fairly firm and even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Light wood notes (semi closed foot).

1st third: Starts with dark rye bread, cinnamon sugar Swedish hard bread, dried fruit like resins and an oakwood oven. Just pure Christmas enjoyment.

2nd third: Hints of orange croquette and chocolate nougat added to the mix.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable white-ish ash.

Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue with a perfectly medium light draw.

3rd third: Whilst it keeps on going on the same smooth flavours it gets an additional salted and black pepper crackers note. I’m also getting note of Swedish gingerbread (not the super sweet variety more similar to a Anna’s Original).

Duration: 21:15-23:05, 1h 50min.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Wonderfully complex yet well balanced smooth flavour experience. Highly enjoyable.

Result: In my book this is a 94 point cigar.
