Review - Kafie 1901 Cigars Don Fernando Maduro Toro Bello - 88/100

I actually got the Don Fernando Maduro Toro Bello from Gaby Kafie before the release to market, but failed to write a review until now due various different reasons. My apologies for the delayed comments.

Kafie Cigars is one of the new rising companies on the field with their own take on trying to create a great smoke. I truly enjoy testing and writing reviews about the new cigars out there. It is a great experience to grab a cigar from the humidor without any set expectations.

So, here we go - from zero expectations...

The Toro Bello is an appealing cigar with a chocolaty appearance. It has a deep brown, oily wrapper with just a few veins. It feels well made and looks that way too.

The unlit aroma is setting the expectations with a mix of sweet chocolate, earth and hay. And that is what you get - sweet chocolate, earth and hay with a musty feel to it in an overall round, medium bodied profile.

Despite the somewhat uneven burn, the cigar delivers an even experience all the way through. It does not develop that much, but if you like the flavor profile to begin with, then it is not to be held against the cigar. Progressing further, the cigar delivers a very musty, creamy and sweet chocolate core accompanied by some appearing coffee and pepper, becoming more prominent in the end.

Overall, a very good cigar. Not really my favorite flavor profile but i know many who would love it. A cigar worth a try. And if you like it, then go for it!
