Review Notes: Pardon my enexperience in this review. I lit this one up @ about 1:15 on a Sunday. The cigar looked nice. Nothing spectacular, but nice. I nipped the end and lit it. The first third was a bit boring. After reading the reviews, I was expecting much more. I was, however, drinking coffee for the first 1/3. The coffee was overpowering the cigar I believe. I got a good 'ol crisp Michelobe Light and things started looking better immediately (the Torano silver wrapper and the Michelobe Light label looked like they belong together anyway). The ash was a bit flakey and the wrapper started to split in 2 places. The split did hold together and didn't cause any problems. This cigar had many diffent flavors after the first 1/3. It had mild nutty undertones and at about the 1/2 way point, I got a breif mild "Copenhagen Snuff" flavor. That only lasted about 1/4". Then I got a strong short shot of pepper. Then it started to get very interesting. Flavor changes got very frequent and were appreciated. I don't have quite the pallet to describe all the different flavors from the last 1/2 to the last 1/4. Perhaps I'm not experienced enough to fully enjoy this cigar, but can appreciate the variety it provided. It did start to tunnel at about 1/3 left and had to be re-lit. The last 1/4 had a "sock you in the jaw" earthy taste w/ leather overtones. Quite tastey in my book. This was a slow starter that finished as a great cigar. The burn was slow and even and lasted from 1:15 to 2:45. Much more time than it looked like it was going to need. I will have another one, but I will wait until I am more experienced.
