toranomaster1 Happy Halloween everyone!  Today we have two solid cigars to share with you in the form of the Torano Master Maduro Robusto and the La Flor Dominicana Ligero Cabinet Oscuro Torpedito.


Torano Master Maduro Robusto

The Master Maduro line from the Torano Family Cigar Company is a follow-up to the brands original Master and Master BFC 6 x 60 releases.  Both lines were a hit with cigar fans, which led to the birth of the Master Maduro.  Company president Charlie Torano and master roller Felipe Sosa collaborated on the project, and the end result is said to be full of flavor and medium-bodied in strength.  That sounds like a good combination to me, so I have decided to sample a Robusto offering from the line for this review.  Let’s get started.

The Torano Master Maduro Robusto measures 5 x 50.  Other sizes in the line include the 5 ½ x 54 Toro Gordo and the large BFC 6 x 60.  The cigar's filler is a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, while binder comes from Ecuador and is of the Habano variety.  The wrapper highlights the cigar and is Nicaraguan Habano Maduro.  As mentioned before, the strength of the Master Maduro is said to be medium-bodied.

Torano did a good job of dressing up the Master Maduro to let you know that you are smoking a special stick.  The cigar has a pair of bands that really stand out.  The top band near the head displays the Master name as well as Habano Maduro in red and gold, while the one beneath it showcases the Torano name and logo in black and gold.  The colors of the bands look great against the dark and oily Maduro wrapper.  There are some minor veins that are visible, but no imperfections really stand out.  The cigar also feels very firm to the touch and has no apparent soft spots.  The pre-light characteristics are very inviting, as there's an aroma of mild spice and a cold taste that is sweet.

After lighting, the Torano Master Maduro exhibits a burn that is as good as I could have hoped for.  The draw is easy and there’s a nice aroma that fills the room.  The burn is slow and plenty of smoke is produced.  No touch-ups or re-lights are needed at all, which is another plus in my book.  The light gray ash is solid.
