Carlos Torano Reserva Selecta Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 tubed stick features a cedar sleeve covering a dark tan butter soft wrapper with a couple small veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and faint earthy aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw with minimal smoke output giving a mild-medium almost artificially sweet flavor that carries long through the finish. The first third slowly opens up the draw letting more smoke volume out, while the body hits medium keeping the sweetness adding a creamy wood note. Hitting the 1/2 way point 30 minutes in, the sweetness dies off leaving the wood and a soft creamy texture and flavor, both continuing through the soft long finish. Ending at 50 minutes The last third continues the same great performance and flavor profile, ramping up the strength to medium-full! Thank you very much to viewer Greg Hayes for sending this sample in!

    I like a lot of Torano sticks but this one was not so great. I picked up a five pack and every stick had almost zero flavor. I mean nothing. Maybe it was a bad batch. It happens.

    Great review as always!
