The Fortress isn't a bad cigar but as I remember it wasn't exactly the most complex cigar. I feel it lacks the sophistication of some of Torano's more elegant offerings. I would consider it to be a 2nd Tier Torano if I had to group them to illustrate the example I am trying to make.
Since this has been brought back to life, The Noventa with a year of rest is a gem and the Exodus with a year is Heaven to me. Though I hate to say it, for the price these can be had on the sale and auction sites, you can not go wrong.
I love Casa Torano Natural. It's a very well made cigar that has been completely consistent so far. Very tasty without being harsh, and had a nice relaxing aroma. My wife even likes when I smoke them. The maduro is good too but I prefer the natural in this line.

First time checking out the brand forums here, I must say when I first started the cigars, I bought a Torano Sampler, and I loved the 50 year Box Press, not so good myself at describing what Intaste yet, but that one was like smoking Chocolate! I will get more, and I certainly intend to see how they improve after a few months in the coolidor!
I just received my first "box" purchase - 10 of the Exodus 50yr "Cuban Toro" - 6x54 with pigtails and closed foot. Looks like a CI exclusive - they had them on a daily deal for $40. I know they need to acclimate but it's about all I can do to leave them alone..
