Torano Dominican Selection

Torano continues to impress me, and here’s yet another reason. Quick story, then I’ll jump right into the inevitably juicy, highly-discounted price. 

Torano makes great cigars, that’s one fact you and I both know very well. They always have. But there was a time back in their younger years when their marketing and packaging just didn’t grab enough people, or the right people. So good cigars, really good blends, were missed and forgotten. It’s a sad story, but one that’s played out in this industry hundreds of times before. Fortunately, this one has a happy ending. Charlie Torano recently dusted off the family ‘bible of blends’ and uncovered a deep list of top-notch recipes. Timeless blends, all but forgotten, Charlie had an idea….and the Circa Series was born. 

The first installment in the Circa Series, Dominican Selection, was a brand that hit the market in 1995 at the tail of the cigar boom in an ridiculously crowded market of sub-par handmades.  It just never stood out and the brand’s life was cut prematurely short. But the blend was delicious….still is….and now it’s back for a curtain call. Carefully crafted under the watchful eye of Charlie Torano, Dominican Selection employs a silky, dark brown Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper leaf overtop a rich blend of aged Dominican long-fillers. Mild to medium in bodied, but layered with rich, complex nuances, each well-constructed handmade delivers a balanced array of cream, coffee, nuts, and black pepper. Add in a perfectly executed face lift and a massively discounted CI price and you’ve got a winner on all levels. It’s good, damn good, and it’s just the beginning.

My new favorite
I prefer a mild to medium smoke. The Dominica is my new daily favorite. Many cigars in the price range start out great but the last third of the smoke is bitter and strong...not in a good way! Not so with the Dominica. It is smooth all the way to the end. It is the reason I smoke. It is a pleasurable experience from start to finish.

I smoke 3 different cigars all the time. I like variety. These are my favorite. Can't remember ever experiencing a bad rolling job. Well worth the price.

I bought a bundle of 20 cigars as advertised, a nice smooth smoke how ever it seemed like every third cigar had a kink in it not worth the money

One of my go-to golf cigars
This is one of my preferred cigars, not just on the golf course, but all the time. And you can't beat the price point. I like it!

Came out of a CI grab bag. Not very good, poor draw, didn't burn evenly. In fact didn't finish it.

these are my favorite. mild but tasty. burn very well. never go out. very consistent quality and build. for the price, why smoke anything else? anyone who doesn't try these doesn't know what they're missing. I highly recommend. But if you folks buy too many, they'll probably raise the price on me.

Nope!
I got one of these in a sampler. It was not a pleasant smoke. Pretty devoid of any flavor. Terrible draw and burned very unevenly. The draw was so tight that I could barely get any smoke out of it. It had a very fragile ash that was very dark, dark grey...nearly black...and it dropped about every half inch or so. I tried to struggle through this one hoping that the second half might be a bit better...but I finally had to hang it up. I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt and assume that I just got a bad one....but it literally left a bad taste in my mouth. It's going on the "NEVER AGAIN" list.

Great cigar for the money
I smoke this cigar on the golf course and it holds up well. The taste is consistent and never bitter. You will not go wrong

I've never had a bad Torano.
I've had the Gordo's before the Torpedo's and to be honest I think I liked the Gordo's better. That being said bang for the buck, they both rock. These are my go to cigars.

I was a little hesitant to make this purchase because it sounded too good to be true. Boy was I wrong! Nice construction, smooth draw and excellent taste was my surprise. I would buy these again in a minute.

Customer Testimonials
A wonderful morning cigar.
I received this jewel in a brown bag deal from CI. I really enjoyed this stick. Good draw, burned very even and creamy smoke. I was surprised when I looked it up for ordering purposes at the price. I am ordering some for my father as he has a light palette. All I can say is I really enjoyed this one.
Bought a bundle of 20 Torpedoes on special (thanks CI) and have been happy with them. Starts out a bit harsh, but mellows very quickly and gives you about an hour of pleasure. Finishes very nicely, spice and pepper. Very satisfied.
Got the Torpedoes on sale and tried them. All in all a great cigar. Well made, good burn, and finishes nice. Nice easy smoke, hope they go on sale again in the future.
I picked up a bundle of 20 Gordos (6" x 60) for just $39.99. An amazing deal. These smoke like $5 - $8-a-stick cigars. Very smooth, rich smoke. I've passed a few of these out to friends and family, and they're great for occasional cigar smokers; pleasant enough for them to enjoy, but nuanced enough for the dedicated smoker. The next time these go on sale, I'm buying at least two bundles, I wish I had bought two earlier.
This cigar is smooth and full of taste. Perfect balance of flavor and aroma. Very meaty and hardy. I am enjoying it to the nub.
