Sometimes it is nice to have a box of more affordable cigars on hand. You can give them to friends who may not be sure that they want to smoke a cigar. You can give them to people with dull palates who cannot taste the difference between a fine cigar and a lesser cigar. They make for a great cigar when you’re out doing yard work. Where you run the risk of dropping your cigar or otherwise, losing it to the ground in a spot that you might not want to pick it up from. (Oh, Fido!) The Benchmade Toro box of 25 is just such a cigar.
As with all the spicier offerings from Ashton, these cigars are made for Robert Levin and company by Don Pepin Garcia of My Father fame. Made in the plant in Esteli, Nicaragua, they use nothing but Nicaraguan tobacco, expertly cultivated and aged, the cigar is topped in an attractive pigtail cap, making the cigar look a little bit fancier and giving it a bit of flair. When lit, the cigar is a spicy endeavor, leaving notes of spice in the mouth for some time after you’ve finished smoking.
If you are looking for a good and affordable cigar, or if you’re just looking for something that you can give to friends or poker buddies who may not be wanting to smoke an entire cigar, these are a great choice for you, and one that will not break the bank.
