La Barba One & Only (2018) in Super Toro by La Barba Cigars

 Dominican Republic, Ecuadorian Habano, La Barba, La Barba Cigars, One & Only, Super Toro, Tony Bellatto, Toro To the “Feel”, this is a hefty cigar delivering barnyardy, earthy, and leather tobacco flavors that struggle to ride thru on some sparse creamy smoke… The retrohale is so soft and subtle it almost doesn’t exist. Let’s see how she progresses

At the halfway point, still thru a skimpy draw that’s providing challenges to get mouthfuls of smoke. With some double puffing, I am able to extract a mouthful or two of chewy smoke and it is wonderful. Creamy and smooth leather tobacco flavors. The retrohale steps up a little delivering a soft creamy spice experience… So far so good. If it weren’t for the snug draw I’d be… Happy

Overall, I initially enjoyed this cigar. I think I’ll grab a couple more to see if the draw remains the same snugness… If I find one that delivers… how knows…
