CASA DEL TABACO | CIGAR REVIEW

FEBRUARY 6, 2022 - PHIL KURUT, COMEDY - CIGARS - MUSIC


CASA DEL TABACO TORO (7 x 52)

WRAPPER: NICARAGUA

BINDER: ECUADOR

FILLER: COSTA RICA, HONDURAS, NICARAGUA

Mild sweetness, bread, and earth flow from the Casa. The draw has just the slightest bit of resistance, which allows for a sufficient smoke output.


The retrohale is earthy and sweet, leading into a finish of toast, spice, and a subtle suggestion of raisin.


Body rests at a dead on medium.


The foot smoke kicks some nuttiness, wood, butter, and spice around the room.


Earth, mixed nuts, and coffee converse as butter quietly paces in the background. I pace when I talk on the phone. Does that make me a phone pacer? Is that a hashtag? Probably doesn't need to be.


The transition from shag to wrapper adds a bit of darkness to everything. Did somebody dim the lights? Setting the mood, I guess.


Coffee seeps into the retrohale, dripping onto the finish and waking up some leather.

Sweetened earth, coffee, butter, and roasted almonds flow through. A touch of harshness begins to tag along at the end.


Coffee grounds and roasted almonds stick around, preceded by a slightly smoother coffee and roasted almonds in the retrohale.


As I observe the burn line, which moves on its own without assistance, raisin checks in.

Purging eliminates a rising harshness. Raisin sweetens up a bit, influencing coffee a tad. Wood settles in between oak and maple. Oaple? Mapak? Hybrid wood. Seems scientific.


The Casa pushes coffee to share some space on the finish with oak. No maple. Never thought of oak as a selfish wood. Alpha.


Harshness sneaks back in through an unlocked window. That’s why we lock our windows.


Maple sparingly squeezes out some of its syrup. I’m now imagining a giant squeezing a maple tree to extract its syrup. Could be how it works. Probably not scientific.


Gettin’ squishy like a sponge at the end here.

SMOKE TIME: 2 hrs.

RATING: 2.50 / 4 - I might be a scientist. Not sure.
