Cigar Review: Varina Farms Breakfast Blend Toro
Varina Farms is a relatively new name in the cigar world. I don't know exactly when they got started, but I see reviews of their products going back to at least 2013. That said, they're 100% new to me.
I got the Varina Farms Breakfast Blend Toro in the July box from CIGRco, and I could immediately tell it was unique. The cigar comes completely wrapped in paper. After you take that paper off, you'll find a very light, very appealing looking U.S. Connecticut Shade wrapper. The first few puffs are delicious, and I'm excited to see what Varina Farms has made.

About half-way through the Varina Farms Breakfast Blend Toro, the draw was perfect and the burn was pretty dang even. I also started noticing slight hints of cinnamon, which was a nice thing given that this is a “breakfast cigar.”
That said, at a $7 price point, this cigar is great. That's a rockstar price for what I think is a rockstar-cigar. This is a delicious cigar for those times when you want to smoke something on the lighter side.
Because this cigar has great flavors, with a great draw and burn, at a great price point, the Varina Farms Breakfast Blend Toro earns a CigarScore 5.
