4 out of 5
Typical Torano quality. This is to say, a bit soft, a bit rough, a bit overpriced, but always more than a bit good. If they are a tad soft, it's so they will draw perfectly. Tough looking habano wrapper. Don't worry, it's perfectly cured, aged & tasty, wasty. 3, 4, 5 or more clams per vitola, sure, but they can be had for less, if you shop around a bit. Noventa! It's a good medium blend, with a snappy flavor profile, with that all Nicaraguan black tobacco twang, I love so much. I grabbed a tenner to get free shipping, so invested about $1.85/stogie, which isn't bad at all, for a comely (5" X 50) robusto, with a fancy schmancy 4 color band, come to think of it. It's far too mild for my personal taste, but I really like the flavors & I think most mild & mediumheads will too. 87/100. There should be a hundred year blend coming out in 2016. I look forward to that monumental achievement's celebratory cigar.
