Roxor Deluxe Toro by Perseo
I received a pm from Dan, a fine BOTL (MrMayorga) asking me if I had ever tried the Roxor. He said that he was at a Roxor tasting event at one of his local B&M's and that the owner had developed the blend and has Perdomo making them for him. Dan sent me three sticks to try and review. I decided to try the Cameroon Toro first. It was a nice looking stick, medium brown color with a smooth wrapper and nice construction.
Roxor Deluxe Cameroon Toros are handmade in Estelli, Nicaragua by Perdomo. The Roxor cigar brand is delicious and hand-rolled to near perfection. All tobacco is aged at least 3 years and are made from Ligero, Viso and Seco tobaccos from various regions of Nicaragua which give them a very unique flavor. Just a fun note: They used the name Roxor to be unique as it was a palindrome, which means it is pronounced and spelled the same forward and backward.
I started into the second third and started noticing that it was getting a little spicier with a slight hint of coffee and toffee. I was really enjoying this cigar. Getting more multi dimensional and interesting. For some reason, I kept looking at the band. It is Black and a florescent green as if it could have been designed by a poster designer from the 60s. Anything but traditional, but so was this cigar.
I was forty
five minutes into my smoke as I started in on the last third. It become
more complex with flavor combinations that reminded me more of Pepin than
Perdomo. The finish was excellent.
