Aside from being one of the oldest and most celebrated families in the cigar business, the Toranos have always been known for innovative practices. First introducing the Cuban-seed to the Dominican Republic, the frequent use of premium tobaccos outside of Central America, and now Reserva Decadencia. Hand-crafted in Honduras, this mild-bodied blend employs a well-aged mixture of Honduran, Dominican, and Nicaraguan long-leaf tobaccos hugged by a sultry Connecticut shade wrapper. In fact, this is the same blend as their top-selling, mild-bodied masterpiece Reserva Selecta. However, these superior tobaccos are patiently aged in French Oak Barrels used for a sumptuous chocolate port, enhancing the flavors of each leaf into something very special. A smooth, creamy core of rich tobacco flavors mingles with notes of cocoa, with a sweet, velvety influence. A delicious cigar unlike any other on the market today.
I have been a fan of the Reserva Decadencia for a couple of years now. Well constructed, even burn, excellent end cap. The smoke is creamy and smooth, the flavor profile ranges from milk chocolate at the light to a delicious red wine at the finish. The individual tubos occasionally keep the cigar a little on the damp side, making the draw too tight, but simply open the tube in your humidor a couple of days prior to smoke, and they are perfect!!!
