Review Notes: I've finally smoked enough of these to make a valid review. The pros of this cigar are numerous. The construction is impeccable which leads to a very even burn and a good draw with tons of cool (thermally) smoke. Aesthetically, this cigar is superb. It looks plain classy in its own cedar sleeve, with the elaborate Torano double bands. Flavor wise, it hits the spot. The start has hints of spice that turn into a sweet creamy taste throughout the first half, with the second half transitioning to a more spicy finish. Now here are the cons. This cigar is HIGHLY sensitive to outside factors. One of these I had after a few too many drinks and I could not taste much in it. Another was a bit dry and it was plain disgusting. Another I had with a coffee that was on the strong side and all of the cigarís flavor was drowned out. These things are obviously not the cigarís fault and should not be counted against it, but smokers be warned. Enjoy these sober and without a strong drink and obviously keep them well humidified; true for any cigar but even more so for the delicate Cameroon wrappers.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (4)
