Quick Smoke: MoyaRuiz La Jugada Habano Toro

19 Dec 2015

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

La Jugada

Last summer, I bought a five-pack of this highly regarded cigar from MoyaRuiz Cigars for $38.50 and eagerly smoked a couple. I like strong cigars, but, honestly, La Jugada Habano beat me silly. I tucked the remaining sticks in the humidor and forget about them. Until today. I’m glad I went back. A year and a half of time did wonders for this Toro (6 x 52) with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, undisclosed double binder, and Nicaraguan filler. Age toned down the power a notch and allowed other flavors to shine, especially a wonderful sweetness in the last half. If you want a powerhouse, light it up at once. But if you have patience, I think you’ll be rewarded with an even better cigar.

Verdict = Buy.
