Quick Smoke: Georgetown Tobacco Caucus Toro

28 May 2011

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Caucus is exclusive to the DC-based Georgetown Tobacco shop. According to Georgetown’s website, its name was chosen to honor the efforts of Rocky Patel and others in the cigar industry who came to Washington to help reduce the SCHIP (State Childrens Health Insurance Program) tax hike, effectively limiting the tax from $3 to 40 cents per cigar. The Toro (6 x 50), fittingly made by Rocky Patel, sells for around $7 when bought by the box. It features a Sumatran oscuro wrapper, Nicaraguan habano binder, and filler tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua. It’s a medium- to full-bodied smoke with strong, sweet cedary notes with earth and pepper. With excellent construction, it’s well worth picking up the next time you’re at Georgetown Tobacco.

Verdict = Buy.

    Do they have a website and ship outside of the DC area?

    Also, I may need a celebration cigar (Bruins going to the Stanley Cup) and am looking for ideas.
    I like mild to medium cigars.

    You'll find Georgetown Tobacco at They do online sales. And you should also stop by anytime you're in the D.C. area. It's a very nice shop.

      Thanks George.
      Now that you mention it my son is going down Tuesday.
      I will have him swing by and grab one or two.
      By the way, Tampa played a great series against the Bruins.
