Falto Terruno “Hermanos”

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

A few years ago, while hanging out at Bonita Smoke Shop, I ran into Luis Juan Falto. There are so many boutique cigar brands these days. Everyone has their name stamped in a cigar band, and I have learned to keep my expectations low. Needless to say, the Falto cigars I smoked back then were quite good. Fast forward to a few months ago. Luis sent me a box of the Terruno Hermanos. After smoking quite a few of them, it is finally time to give you my opinion.

Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper looked good, with a slightly rugged appearance. The odor of the wrapper was an unidentified spice, and cedar. The cigar was solidly and evenly packed. The draw had slight resistance, and a pre-light flavor of cedar and earth.

The ash held for around one inch, and the burn required no corrections.

The first third had a mixture of cedar, cayenne pepper, nuts, and earthy notes. The smoke feel was dry, smooth, and peppery. Despite this, it didn’t leave me craving water, or feeling parched.

The second third kept that dominant cedar and peppery core. Like before, nuts, cayenne, and earthy notes wrapped around those core flavors. The smoke feel took on a slightly sweet creaminess.

The last third kept the same basic flavor profile as the second third. The only difference I could pick up was a faint, floral note. The body and strength picked up a bit, but remained in the medium range.

This was a good, solid, medium bodied cigar. The flavors were simple, but balanced and refined. I couldn’t get a price range, so I can’t factor that in. So, price aside, every Terruno I smoked was enjoyable. I tried them at various points of the day, from breakfast to dinner, and it worked.
