Initial Thoughts:

I love getting cigar recommendations from the CigarScore community, and today's cigar was recommended by YouTube user "Steve's Lip-Smackin' BBQ" on this video. Today, at Steve's request, I'm smoking the New World Toro by AJ Fernandez.

Before lighting it, I noticed that this cigar has an interesting aroma. It almost smells like there's a hint of rose in the dark, coarse wrapper. However, immediately upon lighting the cigar, it was very smooth and sweet.

Final Thoughts:

If you like peppery cigars or cigars with lots of spice, you'll enjoy the New World Toro by AJ Fernandez. If you don't like cigars with heavy notes of pepper, you'll, at least, like the first half.

This cigar is well made, it has complex flavors, and it comes in at a fair price. The draw remained practically perfect the entire smoke, even though we got a torrential downpour during the second half of the cigar. However, there was a burn issue that required some retouching.

Because I'd smoke this again when next in the mood for a moderately peppery cigar, the New World Toro by AJ Fernandez earns a CigarScore 4.
