    Characteristics A rich, dark, and oily wrapper gives this cigar plenty of flavor but with a light sweetness to it. Insider's Tip With its darkly aged Honduran wrapper, this cigar stops just short of being a maduro. Combined with Nicaraguan and Honduran filler, it is not quite as full as the Casa Magna Colorado, and the Obscuro’s silver band firmly sets it apart. A very rich and slightly rugged smoke. Available in five sizes, with the 6 x 52 Toro being our favorite shape in this relatively new line. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
