"A Good Year"

Review Notes: The Encore needs a good year in the humidor to realize most of it's potential (IMHO). After trying this cigar at the age of three months I realized that there is a reward for those who wait. After a year this cigar was more complex, with lots of dark chocolate and cocoa. There were hints of leather, spice and even a little cream. The burn and draw were solid. If you don't mind the wait, this is an interesting cigar, in a very good way.

Review Notes: Started out very tasty and slightly sweet: definite chocolate & earth, with a little bit of pleasant spice. Past the halfway point, I tasted medical gauze. The second hand smoke was acrid, and burned my eyes. A short finish, with an aftertaste of smoky wood like a campfire. Med/full body, but relatively mild in strength. I'll try this again after about 6 months.

Review Notes: This has been floating around the top of my humidor since christmas I think- not even sure where i got it. Well constructed dark oily wrapper, burnt well but uneven at first, nice white ash that held to over 2". Nice chocolate/spice flavor that remained consitant to the nub. I'll be looking for more of these.

"Quality cigar"

Review Notes: Having never been a fan of Torano cigars I was quite surprised to find this an easy smoking expertly constructed cigar. It was very dense and tightly packed but with a perfect draw. White ash was very strong and held on for over 2". Flavors were leathery with some spice and cedar and underlying mild bitterness. Aroma was fabulous and it kept me puffing. For the most part this cigar held up while I puffed away. Many cigars would have overheated. Finish was nice and short and the perfect burn produced tons of aromatic smoke. This cigar was not nearly as strong as I expected to be. Recommended.

Review Notes: A mixed bag of reviews for sure. Several mentioned the "hype" although I have heard nothing of this stick; I just bought a couple 8 or 9 months ago because I like other CT smokes and this looke great. A perfectly made pair with a very pretty dark chocolate wrapper oozing with oily goodness. Perhaps it was the few months in the humi but I found there to be ample complexity and depth with a very rich taste for a medium bodied smoke. Plenty of rich smoke coating my palate in a variety of spices, coffee, and earth. Top notch.
