Cigar Review: Davidoff Back2Back Connecticut Toro Gordo

Initial Thoughts:

This cigar is YUUUGE! Ok, it's not that big, but this Back2Back Connecticut is a 6 x 60 Toro Gordo of sorts, and it feels like a big, beefy cigar.

While punching the cigar, I accidentally knicked the side of the cigar with the bottom of my lighter (the punch is on the bottom). I feel stupid, and I hope it doesn't negatively impact the experience. On the cold draw, I taste citrus and honey.

Brand: Davidoff Back2Back
Line: Connecticut
Size: 6 x 60
Cut: Punch
Light: Torch Matches
Price: $7.49 – Luxury Cigar Club
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut
Binder: Mexico
Filler: Dominican Republic

In the middle of the Back2Back Connecticut Toro, I tasted roasted honey, hints of black licorice, and maybe even some Honey Nut Cheerios. In the final third, I had puffs that were a little sour and sometimes bitter.

Final Thoughts:

The Back2Back Connecticut Toro is a big cigar that has a lot to offer but also has some drawbacks due to its size. I think this particular vitola (i.e. size) is a little too big, and I think a different vitola with a different filler to binder to wrapper ratio might deliver the flavor combination I was hoping for.

While this cigar isn't my favorite, it's still pretty good. Though I might prefer this cigar from RoMa Craft or this one from Perdomo, I think the Back2Back Connecticut Toro is worth trying, just in a different size. Because I'd smoke this again, but would prefer a different size, the Back2Back Connecticut Toro vitola earns a CigarScore 3.
