The latest review of the smash hit 20 Acre Farm is in and this time it comes from our friends at Developing Palates. Developing Palates is a cigar review site that focuses on flavor and takes a different approach to their scoring system. Instead of a traditional 1-100 scale Developing Palates does a weighted scoring system that takes every part of the smoking experience into account (first third, second third, construction, flavor) and also accounts for the price and the value of the cigar.

“Jiunn: Elegant and at the same time punchy. The Drew Estate 20 Acre Farm Toro has all the traditional (good) sides of Connecticut Shade as you would want (bread, hay, cedar). But unlike most, this one has a nice consistent dry red pepper spice backing that interplays quite well with the softer notes. I’d call this a winner.”
“Aaron: The primary band on the Drew Estate 20 Acre Farm Toro is white, red and gold and denotes the line name and company. A cedar sleeve runs from just under the primary band down to the foot and has the line name printed on it vertically. At the foot, a red ribbon is over the cedar. After sliding the cedar sleeve off, a medium tan, with hints of green, wrapper. There are some decently raised and knotty veins present. The seams are pretty smooth, and the head has a top cap with some slightly lifting edges. The aroma from the wrapper is a mix of cedar and sweet hay, while the foot brings a mix of cedar and graham cracker. The pre-light draw brings dry, aged cedar and a very mild baking spice.”
