ToroX3 refers to the triple-fermented ligero blend in this gorgeous release by Kaizad Hansotia, an expert cigar creator who has become a legend in his own time. With this cigar the creator of the Gurkha brand of cigars has once again outdone himself. Two words sum up the look of this cigar: absolutely beautiful. And we’re referring to the stick itself, not the extra bands, including a wide sand-colored one, which do add a touch of class. The construction is superior. Press it; it’s probably the firmest cigar we’ve featured this year. Our panel members appreciate quite a wide variety of diverse cigar looks, but this sort of deep, dark, oily, and textured maduro wrapper may just be a favorite of most of them. The pre-lit aroma is fantastic on its own, but it’s only a preview of the flavor this stick offers in full flare mode, about an inch down. It employs an intoxicating blend of aged ligero wrapped inside a dark, handsome Brazilian maduro wrapper. Its full-bodied tobaccos are triple fermented for added smoothness. The result is a powerful, “after dinner only” cigar that you’ll want to smoke when you have plenty of time to sit and enjoy it. If you can bring yourself to take your eyes off this stogie and light it up, expect it to start with a blast of spice. The intensity gradually fades to a smooth, chocolatey richness that is complemented by a distinct woody (mainly cedar) character. A robust cognac or Armagnac pairs beautifully with the X3.
