"GREAT CIGAR, GREAT PRICE!!!"
VERY NICE CIGAR. GOT IT IN A VARIETY PACK. I SMOKED IT 1ST BECAUSE IT EVEN LOOKED LIKE THE BEST IN THE PACK. ONE OF MY FAVORITE CIGARS IS THE PADRON ANNIVERSARIO 1964. THIS TORANO CIGAR IS VERY COMPARIBLE TO THE ANNIVERSARIO BUT IT HAS A LITTLE MORE KICK TO ITS FINISH. COMPARE THE PRICE AND YOU WOULD DEFINETLY CHOOSE THE TORANO. I WILL BE BUYING A BOX.

"Anyone seen my Punch Double Corona??"
I don't see what the big deal is with this one. It isn't bad, it isn't great, and the problem is that it tastes like 100 other cigars out there (even some bundles). Nothing about this one (as far as taste goes) impresses me. It looks great, with the chocolate brown, Cuban-pressed wrapper, and fancy collar. The draw was somewhat tight, and I had to work at it to get an average amount of smoke from what turned out to be a warm draw. To me, the only discernable flavor I detected was smoke, and towards the end, I got this mouth-numbing "chemical" taste. I seem to have hit or miss luck w/ the Torano brands - the Signature Maduro and Exodus Silver are 2 of my favorites, but I'm not a believer in this one or the 1916 Cameroon. Bottom line - for my tastes, there are better choices in the Habano/ sungrown wrapper, full-bodied blend segment of the cigar market.

"Now that's a cigar!"
I first smoked this cigar while enjoying a single malt in a Puerto Rican hotel, it is now my "go to" smoke. Long, slow draw, creamy cocoa flavor that makes for a great evening smoke. Mmmm.
