Carlos Torano-Casa Torano Maduro

Monday, August 8th, 2011

I picked up this cigar at a Torano event at St. Pete Cigar. I get varying degrees of opinions when it comes to Torano. For example, Ed doesn’t like the Single Region, but I think it is good. I figured I would give this one a try.


Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Dominican & Nicaraguan

Size: Toro 6 1/4 x 50

Price: Around $6.00


Pre-Light & Construction:

Despite the horrible pictures below, the wrapper actually looked nice in person. It was a little toothy and had a few medium veins here and there. Was the wrapper naturally this dark or was dye used? I can’t say for sure, nor does it really matter… The cigar was pretty evenly and solidly packed. The wrapper had an odor of barnyard, and the foot was a mild earthiness. The pre-light draw was free, and had a sweet cedary flavor.

The ash held for just over an inch, and the burn required one correction.

The first third was kicked off with a dark woodiness. There was a faint, unidentified sweetness that joined in a shortly after lighting. When passing smoke through the nose, there was a nice peppery spice with a sweet aftertaste. After an inch in a half or so, the sweetness developed in to mocha with a nice and familiar bitter sweet aftertaste.

The second third pretty much picked up where the first third left off. The dominant flavor was mocha with a sweet and slightly bitter aftertaste. Woody notes lingered in the background. I am basically repeating myself… The pepper through the nose was nice and had a good zing to it. It was more like a peppery sweet spice.

The last third kept the same flavor profile. The only difference was the smoke feel became thicker and slightly creamy. Otherwise, copy and paste my previous comments here.

This was a good medium bodied cigar. The flavors were common to many maduro wrapped cigars, and that isn’t a bad thing. Although the flavors were basically the same throughout the entire cigar, the delivery or complexity held my interest. Everything seemed to belong where it was. Nothing bad, nothing great either. For you maduro lovers, this should be on your list of cigars to try. I liked it.
