"Will the real Carlos Torano please stand up?"
I had a CT signature once and loved it so when I saw them being sold by Famous I was stoked. A few things gave me caution though. One, they were super cheap at half the box price of other online retailers. Two, they came in a narrow tall dark box instead of the flat wide boxes I see elsewhere, and third, they weren't wrapped in cedar as I had seen before. I threw caution to the wind and got two boxes - what a mistake! They reeked heavily of wood stain and varnish which covered the box. That's enough to destroy the flavor of a cigar. I let them sit in my humidor for a while and it didn't help, flavorless. I can only conclude that these are counterfeits, or Torano outsourced the boxing.

Ok cigar. Nothing special. Mild maduro. Not full as in description. Great burn though, no touchup worries.

"Very Well constructed cigar"
Construction and burn are great and the draw is good. Kind bland on the flavor, but I 'll try a few more before I decide to buy a box.

"Complex Cigar - Simple Pleasure"
This is a very interesting cigar. Just a hint of cocao in the first third, with a rich and savory flavor coming through as you smoke further. A medium to full robustness that is spicy and warm for the second 2/3 of the smoke. I really like this cigar!

"Good bold smoke...."
I like these and have picked myself up a few boxes. They burn great and have a medium body flavor. I am yet to have a bad one. Leather flavor with a small amount spice to it.

Well balanced cigar - Everything about it spoke quality. I've been underwhelmed by all the Torano cigars that I had smoked, but was quite happy with the Signature Robusto.

Great smoke with great flavor and draw. Peppery at first draw with a nice mellow sweet/smooth draw on finish.

Great all around cigar, very oily, very pleasant smoke, a 10+ on my scale.

"THIS is the cigar I have waited for"
What can I say? Perfect draw, perfect burn, perfect taste. A solid ten. I would define it as a medium to full strength smoke with an ultra smooth taste. An absolute knockout.
