The cigar now named Torano Vault, is a blend that has been around the Torano family for the last decade. Originally called Liga A-008, this blend never found a home, but recently resurfaced on Charlie Torano’s radar. While it was always a great blend, Charlie Torano thought it needed some extra power and wow-factor before it could be brought to market. He found the secret sauce: a touch of tobacco from Nicaragua’s rich, volcanic Ometepe region - which boosts this cigar’s flavor profile immensely.
With a blend bolstered and a dark, oily Nicaraguan Colorado wrapper, this full bodied treat is no longer a secret. Right from the start, it’s a full-flavored firecracker that is sure to grab your attention. Once you pass through the first inch or so the spice mellows a little and is complemented by a smooth, nuttiness that embraces your palate and never lets go. It's delicious, no doubt. And fairly modestly priced too.
In addition to 'Humidor Selection' honors, Carlos Torano Vault received a well-deserved. 92-point rating, noting: "Well-crafted with an oily wrapper and no soft spots on the cigar. The smoke has a creamy texture, as well as a fairly strong salt-and-pepper character."
“Smoked one the other day. The cigar was so good I would of still been satisfied if it cost twice the price. Delicious.”

“This is a fantastic cigar. Burns nice and slow, and it satisfies. I am a Torano fan, and this smoke stands out. Great flavor that changes throughout the cigar. Has "vaulted" into the top shelf of my humidors.”

“I got a 10pk of toros a little while ago in the Daily Deal. Put them in the humidor for a few weeks & forgot about them. So far I've had four of them, all consistent burn, draw, and flavor...and POWER! These cigars are delicious with a pleasant draw, and POWERFUL! I will keep some of these in my humidors at all times. Did I mention these cigars are powerful? Have a seat with these...”

“I have become a big fan of cigars containing Ometepe grown tobacco. Every time I try a cigar with Ometepe tobacco I find intense flavor and extremely satisfying right to the nub. Vault is no exception. Exceptional construction, long even burn and mouth watering flavor. Don't hesitate to try the new Punch Upper Cut as well. I'm saving my coins for the Cult "Ometepe" which I believe is constructed of all Ometepe grown tobacco. Yum”
“Started out a little harsh, but as it burned down it became a very good smoke. Deep flavors and very well constructed. Full bodied flavor to the end. Not for the newbie but a good cigar for those wanting a strong smoke.”
