The three Davidoff Discovery lines, Escurio, Nicaraguan and Yamasa have always been an adventure in taste. In order to create a blend that combines the best of those cigars whose origins are nature's elements, Davidoff Master Blenders went on a flavour expedition and located a place where fire, earth and water meet.
The Gran Toro unites the sweet and spicy Brazilian tobacco from Escurio, the fiery, bittersweet Nicaraguan tobacco and the complexity of the tobacco from Yamasá in the Dominican Republic, inviting aficionados to discover an untouched, uncharted new region of the palate.
The bigger ring gauge allows for a greater amount of the landmark tobaccos in the filler, thus reducing the influence of the Ecuadorian wrapper on the taste and resulting in a balanced blend with notes of leather, coffee and cedar wood.
Right from the start, the complexity and depth of flavours are present. The mingling of Nicaraguan, Dominican and Brazilian tobaccos in the filler and binder is responsible for intense notes of leather combined with earth and pepper.
The initial spicier stimulation slowly fades and the impressive Gran Toro evolves towards intense notes of coffee, nuts and wood. An interesting development of flavours, where the complexity and the full body are maintained beautifully.
The last third brings out a new layer of aromas completing this diverse taste experience. Cedar wood dominates but also dark chocolate and leather are present. The complexity of this cigar is remarkably effortless.
Binder: Brazil Seco from Brazil
Filler: Hybrid 20-20 Seco and San Vicente Mejorado visus from Dom. Rep.; Esteli visus and Jalapa visus from Nicaragua; Matafina Seco from Brazil
