Gifted to me by Weelok in maw/pif thread.

Exclusive to Cigar Federation described as a "full bodied, med/full strength 6x50 toro".

Before lighting, you can tell this is a San Andres maduro wrapper. It just has that smell. This toro is heavy and dense in the hand. Hoping for a good draw as it seems too heavy. But alas, draw is perfect!

Upon lighting, copious amounts of smoke. Again I get that nice dark, rich tobacco essence, with hints of spice along with cream to balance it out. As the cigar gets shorter, hints of leather and more spice but the creaminess is still coming through. Has a fairly clean finish, that I didn't expect. Nice. They say it's "uber" complex. I don't about "uber" but it was very interesting all the way through.

If you like a fuller bodied maduro, you will really dig this one. Good cigar from lighting to ashtray and even better because the price is outstanding for these. Thanks Dave!
