Ave Maria Divinia Toro by Ave Maria Cigars

COVID-19 Day 736
 Ave Maria Cigars, Ave Maria Divinia Perfecto, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan Habano Sun Grown, Toro I was looking forward to enjoying this delicious Nicaraguan Habano Sun Grown wrapped Ave Maria Divinia in Toro by Ave Maria Cigars… earthy chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts, and woody cedar notes… coming my way!

But… I was outside and didn’t take the proper precautions, so I’ll own the “Operator Errors” that I made with today’s specimen… In my haste, I didn’t “Dry-Box” this to condition it for smoking today and it didn’t help that I was in the cold outdoors with a warm fire on one side and the cold all over the rest made for some cracked wrapper action at about the halfway point.

But, I was able to enjoy a little more than half of it before it blew up! I’ll know better next time for sure!

Until then…

 Ave Maria Cigars, Ave Maria Divinia Perfecto, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan Habano Sun Grown, Toro Through a deliciously perfect draw come volumes of easy smoke delivering earthy chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts, and woody cedar notes… the retrohale caresses my nostrils with leather and a slight pepper spice zing.

At the halfway point after about 90 minutes… this is a slow burner, and I’m not complaining about that… leather tobacco flavors keep me company the rest of the way as the creaminess becomes the focus of my enjoyment.

Today’s smoking experience with this Ave Maria Divinia (Toro) by Ave Maria Cigars, I’m pretty convinced that this will a part of the regular Cigar Rotation moving forward… this is a very enjoyable cigar!

Smoke Time: 2 Hours

Until next time…

 Ave Maria Cigars, Ave Maria Divinia Perfecto, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan Habano Sun Grown, Toro First time with this Vitola today… and I’m a fan!

Through volumes of easy creamy smoke came earthy tobacco flavors of coffee, oak, and leather with a spicy white pepper blast on the retrohale encouraging me to smoke more…

At the last third, this cigar is proceeding swimmingly with some malty tobacco flavors entering the picture… The white pepper blast on the retrohale has not let up and I’m fine with that.

Overall, I’m quite please with this new adventure in this Ave Maria Divinia Toro by Ave Maria Cigars. I can’t wait to smoke it again and perhaps be on the lookout to purchase more of these.

Smoke time 90 minutes.
