Quick Smoke: 2012 by Oscar Rebirth Edition Corojo Toro

26 Feb 2017

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.”

2012 RE - Oscar Corojo

This cigar commemorates Oscar Valladares’ first blend: 2012 by Oscar, introduced (you guessed it) in 2012. Last year’s re-release comes in three wrapper varieties: Connecticut, Maduro, and Corojo. I’m smoking the box-pressed Toro (6 x 52), which uses a Honduran-grown Corojo wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder, and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and Honduras. Lots of woody spice, bread, clove, and some slight sourness. It’s well-constructed and full-bodied. Nowhere near as excellent as The Oscar or Leaf by Oscar, but worth a try if you like Honduran cigars.

Verdict = Hold.
