Torano Master Robusto
5 x 50 - Maduro - Box of 21
Since launching the original Master in 2010, the brand has received numerous 90+ ratings, including a 98 rating in Cigar Journal Magazine, the Torano Family added a Maduro version with a Nicaraguan/Dominican core, Ecuador Habano binder, and a sun-grown Nicaraguan Habano Maduro wrapper. The result was a complex cigar with an abundance of flavor and sweet-spicy notes. The Natural offers a diverse, all-Nicaraguan core with an Ecuador Habano wrapper. Try some of these masterful cigars now.
I must start out by stating that I am a newbie so take it for what it is worth. This cigar had a great burn and draw but the flavor was pretty harsh. I got this one in a sampler pack. I would not purchase this one again.
This started off very nice, with medium-bodied, full Maduro flavors, so I figured I was in for a treat. Then, almost an inch in, I noticed that one side of the wrapper hadn t burned at all! After evening out the burn line, I proceeded puffing, only to be greeted by bland flavors around the midpoint, and then the wrapper started again lagging behind on the same side!! Finally, on the last third the stogie began shedding pieces of still burning tobacco from the filler!!! Sorry Torano, given the construction of your sticks it appears like you re not trying very hard...
A good solid cigar. Draw was a little tight but got better after smoking the cigar. I detected taste of leather, cocoa and slight sweetness. Worth a shot and the Torano brand is very good cigar makers in their own.
