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.
