With the Limited Edition 2022 Gran Toro, Davidoff sought to create a blend that combined the tobaccos of the Escurio, Nicaragua, and Yamasá lines. The cigar is complex and flavorful, with a very broad flavor profile. Aromas are added and layered on top of each other throughout each third while being masterfully balanced among themselves.

It opens with aromas of wood and herbs that carry into the first third, where vegetal notes, white pepper, and hazelnut are added. Then the nutty component turns to almonds, and the coffee joins the profile. Balsamic nuances appear in the last third, together with black pepper.

HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?

Those who scored the highest among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews get re-selected. These products are then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared, and the TOP 5 are created.

Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs in order to give the right space to all the producing countries. From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. Together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy, and the best Boutique Brands, this list will be published in CigarsLover Magazine issue #5.
