    The third vitola of La Sagrada Familia's maduro trilogy. The toro and robusto both had high ratings but according to brand owner's Tom Mulder, this nub-like vitola has a distinctive flavor profile. Let's find out!

    It takes some effort to light up but when it goes, it goes. Lots of smoke and plenty of flavor.

    Toward the end, the cigar gets clogged. I had similar burn issues with the first LSF Maduro 460 I tried (but didn't review). May be not entirely my fault?
