"Well worth the money."
This is one of my favorite cigars. Good construction and full of flavor. The only problem I've had is the occasional tight draw. Other than that, very satisfied with this smoke.

"ONE OF TORONO'S BEST YET"
Well made cigar with a dark wrapper and nice oils the smoke is rich and thick leaving a damp wood taste. It's burn was superb and it's draw was perfect.The finish was long with notes of black cherry.

"Great, when they're great."
I love these cigars. They're smooth and flavorful. My only concern is that I've had a couple that seemed to lack the depth of flavor and mild punch of the majority I've smoked. We're talking 2 out of 12 at this point. I suppose it could have been me, but I smoke a lot of cigars and am pretty aware of subtleties. I will still buy and enjoy, just had one last night as a matter of fact. Loved evey puff down to the nub.

"Torano's Best Ever!"
A couple weeks ago, I received a box of Maestro's that disappointed me. In frustration, I wrote a negative review that was not fair, and (it turns) out was certainly not accurate. Shortly after that, Famous helped me contact Charlie Torano, who agreed to replace them, and just to be sure, I also bought a couple sticks at my local shop. After letting them stabilize a few days in my humidor, they are terrific! I now suspect that first box probably got too hot or dried out in shipment.
These sticks are elegant, firm, with beautiful dark wrappers and perfect caps. The flavor is rich and full, with tons of smoke. The burn is perfect and the draw is just firm enough, without being tight. The taste is mostly just good tobacco, with hints of leather, a bit of citrus and cedar. The Torano Camaroons and 1959 Exodus have always been at the top of my list, and these are better. A super-premium in every sense. My new favorite!

"Disappointing effort from Torano"
I love Torano cigars, with the 1959 Exodus my personal favorite, but this is a real disappointment in the construction and especially the flavor dept. Like all Torano's, it's beautiful. Dark, well-wrapped, mouth-watering to look at. But after you light it up, the construction was very inconsistent, some too tight, some loose, not many "just right." Lots of canoes and had to re-light or touch-up almost every stick, and the flavor was astonishingly harsh for a Torano. Not awful -- Torano's a good brand -- but I'm not likely to buy this edition again.

"Soooo good it is difficult not to eat them."
Not necessary to be an experienced smoker to enjoy these incredible dark tasty long lasting smokes. Plan on spending at least and hour plus after lighting up.
