I had a very long day in front of the computer handling edits in my normal job as an erotic romance author and needed a cigar. I lit this up looking for something different than my normal Padron or Cuesta Rey and seeing as how I have a few of these now in my humidor along Fonsecas and other stuff, I figured I’d try one again.
Wow, what flavor! Peppery spice hit my palate upon lighting up that mellowed into a toasty flavor with undertones of refined earth and dark coffee. Due to the maduro wrapper I picked up notes of cream too. Firm ash that held on for the first inch suggested good construction.
I smoked with this Roibos tea in front of the Good News Cafewhile reading. I’ll probably try to pick up a box or so.
A very nice smoke that lasted about an hour or so. The maduro leaf used brings out a lot of flavor and even an hour or so later I’m still tasting it. Nothing about this cigar is overpowering though it’s rated as a medium bodied cigar. FYI, tis is one of the only maduros the Torano family makes and will become a staple in my humidor. I picked this beauty up in a five pack from Cigarbid at a decent price but checking out box prices at Cigar.com puts it at a similiar price to my beloved Padrons.
