Cigar Review: Boutique Blends La Boheme Poeta Toro
Today's cigar is one I've had before, but wasn't able to review initially. However, after smoking the Boutique Blends La Boheme Poeta Toro the first time, I knew I wanted to review it and tell the world about this cigar. After all, the La Boheme reminds me of a cigar that costs three times the price.
In the first few puffs on the Boutique Blends La Boheme, I could taste wheat and grass, and the draw was perfect after cutting the end with my guillotine. Almost immediately, the flavors were familiar to me. Could the $12 Boutique Blends La Boheme Poeta be as good as the $34 Byron Grand Poemas?
During the first third, I had a great draw, a great burn, and great flavors.

Through the middle of the cigar, I could taste leather and wood. Although there was a little sweetness at the beginning of the cigar, I didn't taste it through the middle. The draw remained perfect and the burn was good, though not razor sharp.
While I don't think the cigar I reviewed was as good as the first one, the Boutique Blends La Boheme Poeta Toro is still a really good stick. Throughout the smoke, I tasted notes of leather and wood, but almost none of the sweetness I got in the first puff.
In my opinion, the La Boheme is every bit as good as the $34 Byron. Great construction, great flavors, and a great price earn the Boutique Blends La Boheme Poeta Toro a CigarScore 4.
