Right off the bat, the large black, silver, and red band near the head catches my eye. It’s size not only screams for attention, but the band has a shine to it that is hard to avoid. The Loyal and Toraño names are stamped on the band in impressive fashion. As for the cigar itself, the dark brown wrapper has a good amount of oil and only minimal veining. The appearance is smooth overall. The cigar feels firm to the touch and lacks any soft spots. I notice a pre-light scent of cedar and an earthy cold taste.


Once in action, the Toraño Loyal Robusto burns without any negative issues. The draw is just right, and the burn is slow with plenty of thick smoke. The solid gray ash looks great and keeps my shirt and floor clean by remaining firm. My lighter can take a break for a while, because no touch-ups or re-lights are needed whatsoever.


If the Loyal remains true to one thing, it’s flavor. There are plenty of flavors to be enjoyed in this Robusto that keep my palate entertained. Spicy pepper kicks off the festivities and is soon joined by earth and nuts. The second third turns sweet and woody. The final third brings back some milder pepper and finishes things off with coffee and cedar.


The Loyal Robusto is a perfect example of why Toraño has a solid reputation. The cigar looks good and tastes even better. There was never a dull moment thanks to the various flavors which made me wish that the cigar would never end. Best of all, the Loyal is affordable at $5 per single. I suggest picking up a box of 21 to keep around for you and your friends.


The Carlos Toraño Loyal Robusto earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
