Introduced in 1914 and rolled with genuine Cuban tobacco leaves, this legendary little gem was the pick of the litter, especially at a nickel a piece. The good news is that the brand is back! With a new blend, a 93-rating, and a Top 25 appearance under its belt, El Baton is beginning the assent again.
El Baton is a Nicaraguan puro being offered by J.C. Newman. Complex and full in body, this cigar features carefully selected long-fillers harvested from the highly fertile soils of Nicaragua. It’s bold and potent, featuring generous notes of nuts, coffee, spice, raisins, and sweetness. Well-made, and steeped in tradition, this is one handmade you won’t want to miss.
This one is everything you're looking for. Gobs of creamy smoke. Hits the CI description on the head. Strong, white ash. Perfect burn and draw. These flavors astound. Made my top 5...

I picked up a double toro at my local shop and let it rest in my humi for a few months. I keep it at a solid 65%. This was the first cigar in quite some time that I had to take my lighter to while smoking. I had to touch it up four or five times. Other than that inconvenience, it was a good cigar. Tasted great with lots of smoke. I will definitely try another one and hope for a better burn next time.
