Quick Smoke: A. Flores Serie Privada Capa Habano Toro

7 Apr 2013

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.”


Abe Flores of Pinar del Rio makes a lot of cigars, but maybe its telling that he chose to put his name on the Serie Privada. The line comes with an Ecuador Habano wrapper (natural or maduro) around a Nicaraguan Habano binder and Nicaraguan Habano and Dominican Corojo filler. I smoked the Toro (6 x 54, though the box press makes it seem smaller) which retails for $11.25. It’s a medium- to full-bodied smoke with tons of flavor, ranging from cinnamon and toast to black coffee and leather. Flavorful and complex with excellent construction, this one is easy to recommend.

Verdict = Buy.
