Rocky Patel delivers a private reserve cigar great to honor one of the world’s best pipemakers (Erik Nording). I had three in my humidor which were given to me by a close friend of mine, and I had enjoyed all three tremendously. I smoked the last one in order to write this review. The cigar (when available) can be found in four vitolas: a Robusto (5.5 x 52); a Torpedo (5 X 54); a Toro (6.5 X 52); and the subject of today’s review, the Toro Grande, a 6 x 58 masterpiece.
I looked in several websites to track down who carries it and how much are they running, but it was difficult to find a retailer that had them in stock. Most of them were listed as “Backorder.”
