Leaf by Oscar Maduro Toro

My good friend Joe and I wandered over to the great @HeightsCigar Lounge to enjoy some #cigars from @LeafByOscar – Created by Island Jim Robinson and Oscar Valladares, and made in the Oscar Valladares Factory in Danli, Honduras.
Having received the cigars as a gift from a fine gentleman – our good friend MG – we decided to enjoy the cigars in the company of our fellow #botl. Once we removed the ugly, husk-like outer wrapper made of tobacco leaf, which perfectly protected the cigars, we began our lighting ritual. I had the Toro (6 x 50) maduro version of this fine stogie, which featured a Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper, and binder and filler from Honduras. I found a perfectly rolled cigar with a lusciously oily wrapper with few veins.
The cigar had a great weight, and was nicely packed – no soft spots. The band, which is an organic band made of agave leaf. As I smoked the cigar, notes of leather, toasted nuts, honey, earth and salty meat rose in the copious billows of smoke. The burn line got a little wonky on me once or twice, requiring a few touch-ups. The draw remained very easy throughout.
The #LeafByOscar started out smack-dab at medium strength, and increased during the smoke to medium-full strength, and the flavor profile tracked this almost perfectly. My friend and I discussed the cigars with the other patrons and found that almost no one else had tried a cigar from Leaf by Oscar, and given our conversations, it seemed likely they would give the stogies a try.
The Leaf by Oscar Maduro is an excellent cigar. I would rate the cigar a 90. Definitely one worth making space for in your humidor.
