"Chocolate and spice"

Review Notes: This stick is definitely in my top 5 favorites of all time. It had a beautiful dark oily wrapper and burned with a white razor sharp ash. The flavor reminded me of a Monte Platinum only perhaps better. This IS the spicy, chocolatey flavor I seek in all cigars.

Review Notes: A very oily wrapper covers this short and thick cigar. It burns consistently and leaves behind a solid tube of ash that's almost as white as the band and is a nice contrast against the dark wrapper. While the draw is on the firm side, it's more than acceptable. This is a spicy, leathery smoke that leaves a sweet licorice aftertaste on the finish. It's stronger than most Toranos but it's far from overpowering, and I'd classify it as slightly more than medium-bodied. Not super complex either, but I liked it.

"Second review after 4 months....."

Review Notes: After letting these sit for 4 months I did not enjoy this smoke any more than the first time. In fact, it seemed more powerful and a bit harsh. These are too full bodied to really enjoy even if you take your time. Some cigar companies go a little too far on full smokes that they lose that balance that is needed for a great cigar. But I guess they do make something for everyones tastes!

Review Notes: A very nice smoke! This robusto is wrapped in a lush, rich, oily, mildly toothy chocolate wrapper with hardly any veins. Construction was excellent, as expected, without any soft spots. Easy light. Slightly firm draw. Even burn without the need for corrections or relights. White-gray ash. Started immediately with pepper and spice, which then transitioned into a cornucopia of flavors in the first third, including cocoa, burnt leather, nutmeg, earth, nuts, and a grassy flavor which was fairly unique to this cigar. The grassiness picked up in the second third and was joined by fruity notes, wood (particularly oak), and game with a whipser of red bean ice cream (no other way to describe that taste!). The last third saw a slightly sour taste that danced in and out, along with charred wood and a hint of dark chocolate. All in all, this full-bodied, complex, 1 hour smoke was a nice offering from Torano. I was pleased with the medley of flavors presented, though I still feel additional time may be necessary to allow some of the sourness at the end to fade. Would buy more.
