As I first make eye contact with the Serie Jalapa Robusto, its double bands stand out. The top band is white and red in color and displays the Single Region name. Right below it is a thinner red and gold band that carries the Serie Jalapa stamp. The cigar itself has a reddish hue that’s appealing. The wrapper has a bit of oil, and a few medium-sized veins are visible. There’s a bit of give when patting the cigar down. The triple cap looks a tad sloppy. Other than that, there are no real imperfections to point out. The pre-light aroma is sweet, while the cold taste is woody.

Lighting the Serie Jalapa Robusto takes a bit of work, but once it finally gets going, it’s mostly smooth sailing. The draw is good and there’s a decent amount of smoke. The dark gray ash is a tad on the flaky side. The burn stays even from beginning to end, and no re-lights are necessary. I love maintenance-free smokes, and this is one of them.

The flavor department is where the Single Region Serie Jalapa really shines. Yes, it is smooth, but that does not mean it lacks flavor and complexity. In actuality, it’s just the opposite. The cigar kicks off with an interesting sweet flavor that reminds me of cherries. This blends in with some wood. The wood continues into the second third, until it’s taken over by delicious chocolate. The sweet cherry reappears as well. The final third offers more chocolate, plus some cedar and leather. The cigar never goes above medium-bodied strength.

I have to admit, the Single Region Serie Jalapa was very impressive. The complexity was really enjoyable, and there was never a dull moment. If you enjoy Toraño cigars, or are looking for something medium-bodied and flavorful, give this stogie a strong look. It comes in packs of five or boxes of 20, with a single selling for around $6 each. That’s very fair when you consider what the cigar has to offer.

The Carlos Toraño Single Region Serie Jalapa earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

I agree with you 100%.
Like most old school cigar blends, this one takes months to get where the blender intended it to be. But once it gets there, smooth is the word.
Good review.
