The Viking Nordic Warrior Toro is a cigar made by EPC at La Tabacalera Alianza, and it is a collaboration between Ernesto Perez Carrillo and Haakon Aanonsen. Haakon “Hawk” Aanonsen has worked in the cigar industry for almost 20 years, and he is the founder of the largest online cigar retailer in Norway.
The cigar is dressed up in a Colorado leaf that is smooth to the touch. The cigars’ construction is excellent, and the filling is uniform and generous. The heads are finished with a pigtail. The band, as is the case for all Viking lines, is made out of metal.
