The Dread by Espinosa Toro

This cigar has a very smooth dark Maduro wrapper with “dreadlocks” (multiple tails off of the head). The bunch is firm and the cold draw is perfect. Tonight’s beverage is an Avery Vanilla Bean Stout.



Initial impressions on this cigar: plentiful smoke that is full bodied while being very smooth. The flavors are cocoa and coffee with a solid cedar base. The burn is mostly even and the ash is layered but solid.



The first third continues to be smooth and pleasant while retaining its full bodied profile of flavors. The retrohale is also very smooth. The burn remains even. The ash drops at about one inch intervals.



During the second third some nutmeg notes appear to add to the complexity of the flavors profile. The retrohale remains smooth and the burn remains mostly even with a slight run on one side.



Approaching the final inch the burn evens out. The flavor profile remains very complex. The construction of the cigar is excellent. What some people may see as a gimmick cigar because of the multiple tails off of the head has turned out to be an exceptional cigar. 9.5/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
