Island Lifestyle by Tommy Bahama Sungrown Toro

This cigar has a mostly smooth wrapper. The aroma from the foot is earthy with some spice. The cold draw is perfect. Today’s beverage is a Karbach Hopadillo IPA.



Initial flavors are mild with a spicy finish. There are earthy and pepper notes with white pepper in the retrohale. The draw is perfect and the smoke is thick and smooth. The burn is very even.



The first third reveals the complexity I have come to expect from sungrown cigars. Notes of earth and cedar with light sweetness and spices. The pepper in the retrohale is not harsh. This is a medium bodied cigar. The burn remains very even and the light grey ash is solid.



During the second third the spices pick up on the draw. The flavor profile remains excellent. The body is moving from medium to full. The burn remains very even.

Approaching the final inch a split develops at the head. I peel off a small bit of wrapper to fix it. The burn went off a bit but evened out. The flavor profile remains excellent. A great complexity of earth, cedar and spice with just the right amount of pepper in the retrohale. I also like the way the cigar develops in strength. 8.8/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
