  1. I smoked the Obsidian Box-Pressed Toro the other day and my opinion is about the same. Overall, for a sub $3 dollar stogie it was great. I had the same issue with the uneven burn and was forced to re-light several times. I did enjoy the cool burn all the way to nub. It wasn’t super complex, but the flavor was a nice sweet/spicy M/F body mix. I don’t know if I would buy a box at full price, but if I get a discounted box or a single in a sampler I will smoke it.

    Smoking a box press toro. 40 minutes in the burn is very even with an inch on the ash. Not overly complex but fine flavor. Earthy, a little spice and a hint of pepper. I’m pretty new with cigars but so far really enjoyable.

    Getting a little bitterness on the roof of my mouth and the long ash is gone. Construction is great. Not oily but a nice dark wrapper.

    Good to know someone else had a similar experience to us when we reviewed it. A bitterness can come across many different ways. Sometimes its overpowering and just ruins the stick and other times is just adds another layer of complexity. Most well aged maduros have a hint of it but the added sweetness usually washes it out. Thanks for your comments.
