Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon Master Mason Gran Toro

Initial Thoughts:

The Hiram & Solomon Master Mason Gran Toro is a big, bold, dark cigar that I've been looking forward to smoking for a while now. I've seen people talk about them on Instagram (come say hello!), and Matt at 2 Guys Smoke Shop in Nashua, New Hampshire said they were some of his favorites.

The Hiram & Solomon Master Mason starts off with an even burn and a great flavor. The aroma of the cigar is really nice and I can taste the Nicaraguan tobacco inside. There is a smooth, creamy-ness to this cigar, although some of the flavors are harsh or raw, kind of a dry flavor.

The Master Mason's wrapper is dark and oily, though the oils aren't up on the surface like with some cigars; the result is a wrapper that appears dry, but is actually well cared for.

Final Thoughts:

If you're looking for a new cigar to try, give the Hiram & Solomon Master Mason a taste. This cigar is well made and flavorful, and it'll last you a good long time. However, make sure you have a meal before you dive into the Master Mason, the nicotine content is high and if you smoke it on an empty stomach, you might feel a little lightheaded.

While not as sweet as I'd have liked, the Hiram & Solomon Master Mason Gran Toro is a good cigar that I'd definitely smoke again. Because I'd smoke it again and because the cigar lasted for dang near two hours, I give the Master Mason a CigarScore 4.
