The original Master series by Torano was crafted with one goal in mind. To create a cigar of the highest caliber, that would truly represent the best that Torano has to offer. The blend, draw, flavor, and overall experience could be nothing short of legendary, and it succeeded, garnering countless praise from critics and earning a 91 rating in Cigar Aficionado.
Now enter the newest offering in the Master cigar line, Master Maduro. Crafted in Esteli, Nicaragua the Master Maduro is the result of tireless blending and reblending by Charlie Torano and blending expert Felipe Sosa. The end result, is a cigar that boasts an exceptional level of balance, as rich smooth flavors coat the palate. Although enticingly dark, the Master never goes a tick over medium-full and produces spicy sweet notes of cocoa, leather and wood followed up by a rich chewy finish. Well-done indeed, each Master Maduro is draped in a beautiful dark and oily Nicaraguan Habano Maduro Wrapper, and is chock full of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers. An excellent sequel, that continues to carry the torch of the Master series boldly forward, that's the Master Maduro.
I didn't necessarily like this cigar much,the draw wasn't all that good and the flavor wasn't up to most torano cigars!

This is among my special occasion maduros. I recommend a full stomach before sparking up this cigar, especialy if you have the gordo on hand. And you can't go wrong pairing this beauty with your favorite whiskey, a quality Dominican(?) rum or, perhaps, a really good porter or malty ale. Indeed, with some time in the humidor they mature beautifully. Here, there is strength, depth of character and an experience that calls your attention back to exactly what you're doing - smoking the Torano Master Maduro. Cheers!
