"Not thrilled"

Review Notes: I smoked this after my 1916, and greatly preferred the former. This cigar seemed to have a harsh flavor to it, not enjoyable. I usually prefer cigars that are more full bodied so that is not the issue. Also, the draw was sub par and so was the smoke...

Review Notes: This is my first cigar from the Carlos Torano line and I will be coming back for more. The appearance of this cigar is ok, a few spots here and there and a prominent vain, but overall not bad. I clipped ofd the cap and the draw seemed ok, a little tighter than I would like but acceptable. Most cigar reviews are divided into thirds, but there were four distinct sections in this cigar to me. The first 1/4th was nice, a combination of coffee and cocoa. After that the draw loosened up a little and was perfect. A loose draw with a little give not sloppy at all. Here is where some nuttiness came through and gained a nice toasty finish. The 3/4th was all nutty (a cashew like taste) with some woodiness, the cocoa was gone. The last quarter was where I was surprised. The cashew taste remained and some bittersweet chocolate flavors came through. I smoked this to the nub and got a good hour and a half from it. This is one of the best cigars I have smoked to date. Granted, I haven't tried some of the higher end smokes, but I wont hesitate to pick this up again. This cigar was from a CS member, but at the MSRP of $6.50 I would consider this a good deal. Thanks for reading.

Review Notes: I expected a bit more ... flavour I guess. not as sweet as expected, but nice earthy, oily flavours. a little spice did it well too. burned like a dream, like most Torano cigars. I still would prefer the Signature Robusto though.

"Age them and smoke 'em slow"

Review Notes: I smoked one of these straight out the box about 9-12 months ago and it wasn't very complex and got very bitter towards the end. Age did them well they developed into a rich complex cigar. Nice coffee/mocha/earth flavor. Make sure you smoke them slow. I smoked them at a slower rate then usual and it seemed to compliment the cigar more. A buddy huffed hard and fast which resulted in a bitter smoke that got hot.

"Thoroughly enjoyable. Tough price."

Review Notes: Wonderful oily, dark Nicaraguan wrapper. Solid draw and burn. Nice meaty flavors of mocha, spice, and coffee within a slightly sweet tobacco base. This reminded me of an El Rey Del Mundo Maduro. Only drawback was the tough price of $6. This stick had been in the box for about 40 days.
