Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Rose of Sharon Toro Score 90%

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Rose of Sharon Toro

“This was one fantastic cigar! It smells like baked bread and a syrupy sweetness before even lighting it. Then when you light it you continue to get that sweetness along with some nuts, and oatmeal. This cigar would pair well with morning coffee, and I feel that this could be your 1st or even last smoke of the day. I want more!!!” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

The addition of hay, grass and leather paired well with the background flavors of nuts, coffee and cocoa. This cigar certainly offered me a very pleasant smoking experience.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
