Casa Fernandez Miami Reserva Toro Review

Another one of my favorite relatively new Brands / Manufacturers is Casa Fernandez. From the Arsenio to the Aganorsa Leaf to their Core Lines, Casa Fernandez has made a very strong imprint in the past couple years with their impressive Nicaraguan blends. Being one of the largest growers of tobacco in Nicaragua puts the good people at Casa Fernandez at a wonderful advantage when it comes time to blend. These guys are not just growers though, as we’ve seen over the past couple years; they can definitely blend a terrific cigar. The new Casa Fernandez Miami is a made at their Miami factory, hence the name and was just released at the IPCPR in July.

The Casa Fernandez Miami sample I’ve received is specifically the Toro Reserva shape. This cigar has some serious heft to it, very well packed and near perfect construction. This CF Miami sports a secondary band indicating the “Reserva” blend. The cigar has some great aromas from the foot, cold draw has some spice, earthy and sweet flavors.

Wow! After lighting this up I am immediately greeted with a blast of flavors… Nice spicy, chewy smoke with a great sweet tobacco finish. I can tell right off the bat this Casa Fernandez is going to be packed with flavor. The draw is effortless despite the amount of tobacco in this Toro. I probably should have had a bigger breakfast! I can feel the power of this cigar even in the first third, luckily I’m partial to full body sticks. Although strong, the cigar is blended with perfect balance and is extremely smooth. Winding up the first third, the spice has all but disappeared, leaving a rich, sweet flavor behind.

There is definitely a flavor that I can’t quite identify yet; so far the cigar is smooth and complex. The second third introduces more of a sweetness that I would say is more of a sugary vanilla then a cocoa flavor that a lot of cigars put off. There are definitely some leathery, tobacco flavors identifiable in the second third.  This cigar is easily identifiable in thirds, as the flavors change almost exactly as each third starts off. The last third picked back up with some more body and mouth feel. The spice came back, and the cigar returned back to the medium-full area of body. I pretty much nubbed this one, the flavor and body just continued to build without ever getting bitter. Smoking time was near 2 hours.

Overall this is a great cigar! Very complex, lots of great flavors from start to finish. Although it may not seem so because of the smoothness it's probably medium – full in body and with the nicotine content considered sometimes falls into the full category. The folks at Casa Fernandez continue to make quality Nicaraguan cigars with lots of flavor and lots of character. Definitely highly recommended, keep reading to see when this brand arrives at Atlantic.

Keep on smoking!
