Since Toraño lists the Vault as a full-bodied selection, I’m anticipating some power. In actuality, the cigar is pretty smooth, but it does have its moments of strength. The first third is marked by cedar and some spice. The second third picks up in strength with the spice but also introduces a tasty blend of nuts, coffee, and cream. The final third maintains the spicy flavor, along with more cedar and leather. I’d label the strength as medium to full-bodied.

I have to admit, the Toraño Vault Torpedo was very impressive. The complexity was not out of this world, but there was just enough to keep me interested. If you enjoy Toraño cigars, or are looking for something full-bodied that is not overbearing, give this stogie a strong look. It comes in packs of five or boxes of 20, with a single selling for around $7 each. That’s a solid value in my book when you consider the quality you are getting.

The Carlos Toraño Vault Torpedo earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

Nestor Miranda Grand Reserve Torpedo

With production capped at 1,000 boxes of 10, the Nestor Miranda Grand Reserve is one cigar that can be difficult to get your hands on. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Torpedo and cannot wait to light it up, so let’s jump right into the review.

The Grand Reserve Torpedo measures 6 1/4x 52, and it’s the only size offered in this particular Nestor Miranda line. The cigar's filler and binder are both Nicaraguan. The wrapper, meanwhile, is of the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro variety. In terms of strength, the Grand Reserve seems to be listed as falling somewhere between medium and full-bodied.
