torvault If you enjoy cigars that carry the Torpedo shape, today’s reviews should pique your interest. Let’s see what the Carlos Toraño Vault Torpedo and the Nestor Miranda Grand Reserve Torpedo have to offer.

Carlos Toraño Vault Torpedo

Although it was released in 2011, the Toraño Vault is derived from a blend that has actually existed for around 10 years. The Vault’s original codename was Liga A-008. Prior to it being ready for release to the public, Charlie Toraño felt that it needed something to make it stand out more and give it more power. That something was the infusion of tobacco from Nicaragua’s Ometepe region.

The Carlos Toraño Vault Torpedo measures 6 1/8 x 52. There are three other sizes in the line: the 5 x 52 Robusto, 5 5/8 x 46 Corona Gorda, and the 6 x 50 Toro. The Corona Gorda is a limited release. The cigar’s filler is a blend of tobaccos from Nicaragua’s Esteli and Condega regions. The binder is a combination of Nicaraguan Ometepe and Honduran Jamastran tobaccos. Last, but not least, is the Nicaraguan Shade Grown Colorado wrapper which completes the composition. Strength-wise, the Toraño Vault Torpedo is listed as full-bodied.

As I first make eye contact with the Vault Torpedo, its double bands stand out. The top band near the head showcases the Toraño name and logo as well as the Vault name in large lettering. The band at the foot displays the Blend A-008 label. Both bands carry a bold silver and black color scheme that reminds me of the Oakland Raiders uniforms. The cigar itself has a reddish hue that’s appealing. The wrapper has a bit of oil, and a few minimal veins are visible. The Vault feels firm to the touch and has zero soft spots. It’s also quite smooth. All in all, this is a very attractive cigar. The pre-light aroma is of cedar, while the cold taste is spicy.

The Vault Torpedo lights with ease and provides an excellent draw. There’s plenty of smoke, and solid ash of a dark gray color is formed. The burn stays even for the entire smoking experience and requires zero touch-ups. No re-lights are needed.
