This smoke was gifted to me last week as I have never had one. (Thanks P!)

The construction was very nice! Tight roll (a bit to tight as we'll see). Nicely kept and looked wonderful.

The inital toasting put off a very "delish" smell/aroma. The first draw was very tight so i snipped another 1/8 an inch. The flavor was weak, and I had to draw at least 4 times to get any smoke. Once I got some smoke there was a nice nutty flavor, but had to work so hard for it. Snipped off another 1/4 inch to try and save some of the smoke. Still was like sucking on a pencil. Just rolled to tight. It didn't seem wet, just hard as hell. I have not enjoyed many Toranto and was really looking forward to this one, but it died a short life. Vertuoso's are the only Toranto I have ever enjoyed and this fell right into the rehlem of not being a "V". Would not smoke this one again. Heck... didn't even get to smoke it the first time. Feeling a bit bad, as it was gifted, but it is what it is.

The band (double band at that!) looks great and was saved for a photo frame for my father's day gift to my dad, but the smoke was very sad.

If I had to rate it...... please don't make me.... but if I had to.... I'd say..... f.

But it LOOKS AWESOME!
