“It was full enough to keep me puffing, but mild enough for an adventurous noob to stretch their horizons. I’ve seen one other cigar that looked like this, so maybe I can guess what it is, but I can assure you that I’ll have more of these when the reveal happens!” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
For those that love cigars this is a passion that connects us. This is what the cigar culture is about. Our culture isn’t about billionaire big wigs in big rooms smoking big cigars.
The La Pilar No. 4 was a great burner. Clean burn line, no touch-ups and no relights. It had consistent smoke output and a draw that improved as it went on. The smoke had a nice full texture and pleasing aroma. The flavor profile was not extreme or complex but each individual flavor component was defined and clean. I always enjoy an increase in strength toward the end and the La Pilar No. 4 delivered that very well. At about 82 minutes, its a long burn time for a box-pressed Toro. That brings more value and more enjoyment. I would gladly reach for this cigar again.
“The initial pepper was nice, but faded away too quickly. The oak flavor was nice and the transition to some creaminess was enjoyable. The retrohale transitions were nice as well. This is something I could see smoking again, but not something I would chase after.” -Aaron (aaron72)
“This was a cigar that was right in my wheelhouse. The look, flavor and performance were just right for me. One note was that I did catch just a little nicotine buzz from this stick…nothing too much, just enough to make it fun! When I find out what this is I’ll recommend it to my friends!” -Jason H.
