Cigar Review: Hoyo La Amistad Black Toro by AJ Fernandez

Initial Thoughts:

The first few puffs were full of mild flavor. After letting the cigar rest for a few minutes after lighting, I didn't taste any ashy flavors or anything negative. However, when punching the cigar, the cap and wrapper cracked about an inch down; not sure if it's poor construction or poor humidification, but I don't think the humidity was too low.

CigarScore 3

Brand: AJ Fernandez
Line: Hoyo La Amistad
Size: 6 1/2 x 52
Cut: Punch
Light: Torch
Price: $9

Final Thoughts:

About halfway through the cigar, the flavors started to taste more like ash, and the ash on the end turned black and brown instead of a light gray.

I'd smoke it again, but I'll keep trying new things. Finally, with about three inches left, the cigar acted like it didn't want to stay lit and I┬áhad to relight – weird.

If I could smoke just the 1st half of this cigar, I'd give it a 4, but since I don't like wasting money, the Hoyo La Amistad by AJ Fernandez earns a solid CigarScore of 3.
