Yet another full bodied masterpiece, from the blending Tsar, AJ Fernandez! Pretty much a straightforward blend, featuring a proprietary Cuban seed habano wrapper leaf from Esteli, draped firmly over Nicaraguan long filler ligeros, surrounded by a spicy Ecuadorian habano binder. Time & again, he uses this method to deliver blend after blend of superior smokes, often for very reasonable price. Relic is about $5 or $6, depending on shape/size. I have already sourced it out at much less, like the Toro I am burning as I write this review. $2.50 invested, making it an excellent bargain. Instead of going through the myriad flavors & strengths this vitola offers, let me say it reminds me very much of Alec Bradley's American Sun Grown. They seem to share the same flavor profile, which is a good thing indeed! You can't go wrong with either one, if you are a typical fullhead like me & enjoy full bodied, full flavored & complex blends, that won't put you in the poorhouse. Both deserve 90 ratings for their pedigree, delicious taste & high quality standards.

The Relic Toro is on my short list of favorites. It starts with a lot of spice (no surprise there, its by AJF) but develops into a complex meld of flavors that include brown sugar, caramel, earth, and deep tobacco. Its excellent draw provides creamy, satisfying clouds of smoke. This cigar reminds me a lot of another favorite of mine, La Aroma De Cuba. Both bring me that "all's right with the world" feeling that keeps me coming back for more.
