Quick Smoke: My Father La Promesa Toro

21 Jul 2019

A couple times each week we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Like so many cigars from Don José “Pepin” Garcia, La Promesa starts with a pleasing blast of pepper. Unlike some others, though, this one dials it back a bit before getting too far along. With an oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler, there’s a wide mix of flavors ranging from tobacco sweetness to leather and nuts. Strength is in the medium range. This new line from My Father Cigars comes in five sizes, with the Toro (6 x 52) running about $9.25. Originally introduced a few years ago in small numbers to qualify under FDA rules, La Promesa is now a full-scale release.

Verdict = Buy.
